Phosphatidylinositol 4-kinase 2-alpha (PI4K2A) is the most abundant phosphatidylinositol 4-kinase in human cells and is responsible for the synthesis of approximately 50% of the total PI4P within the cell. PI4K2A is associated mainly with the membranes of the trans-Golgi network and early and late endosomes; its membrane association is achieved by a heavy palmitoylation within a specific cysteine-rich motif. Besides the synthesis of phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate, PI4K2A is involved in various cellular processes including membrane trafficking, regulation of endosomal sorting promoting target protein recruitment to endosomes or trans-Golgi network, or signal transduction. Particularly, it regulates e.g. targeting of clathrin adaptor complexes to the Golgi apparatus, the Wnt signaling, or EGFR signaling pathway.
