The PI3K regulatory subunit p85 binds to IRS1 or IRS2, tyrosine-phosphorylated at YXXM motifs, through its SH2 domain.
As the p85 subunt is constitutively associated with the p110 catalytic subunit, the outcome is that the whole PI3K complex is recruited to the membrane. The interaction at the plasma membrane of the p85 regulatory subunit with the p110 catalytic subunit of PI3K (phosphatidylinositol-4,5-bisphosphate 3-kinase) causes a conformational change, resulting in activation of the catalytic subunit (Miranda et al. 2001).
