Abstract: Obesity and obesity related diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disorders, and different types of cancer are leading causes of mortality and morbidity in modern society. However, the mechanism that links obesity to these diseases remains largely unresolved. Class 1 phosphatidylinositide 3 kinases (PI3Ka; PI3Kb; PI3Kd and PI3Kg) play a major role in several physiological processes such as the immune response, the metabolic insulin action, and tissues homeostasis. This thesis aims at ... more
