Cell signaling controls essentially all cellular processes. While it is often assumed that proteins are the key architects coordinating cell signaling, recent studies have shown more and more clearly that lipids are also involved in signaling processes in a number of ways. Lipids do, for instance, act as messengers, modulate membrane receptor conformation and dynamics, and control membrane receptor partitioning. Further, through structural modifications such as oxidation, the functions of lipids as part of signaling processes can be modified. In this context, in this article we discuss the understanding recently revealed by atomistic and coarse-grained computer simulations of nanoscale processes and underlying physicochemical principles related to lipidsrsquo functions in cellular signaling.
