Phosphoinositide signaling regulates numerous downstream effectors that mediate cellular processes which influence cell cycle progression, migration, proliferation, growth, survival, metabolism and vesicular trafficking. A prominent role for phosphoinositide 3-kinase, which generates phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5-trisphosphate, a phospholipid that activates a plethora of effectors including AKT and FOXO during embryonic and postnatal angiogenesis, has been described. In addition, phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate signaling is required for endosomal trafficking, which contributes to vascular remodeling. This review will examine the role phosphoinositide signaling plays in the endothelium and its contribution to sprouting angiogenesis.
