Lipid signaling and phosphorylation cascades are fundamental to calcium signaling networks. In this review, we will discuss the recent laboratory findings for the phospholipase A2 (PLA2)/protein kinase C (PKC) pathway within cellular calcium networks. The complexity and connectivity of these ubiquitous cellular signals make interpretation of experimental results extremely challenging. We present here computational methods which have been developed to conquer such complex data, and how they can be used to make models capable of accurately predicting cellular responses within multiple calcium signaling pathways. We propose that information obtained from network analysis and computational techniques provides a rich source of knowledge which can be directly translated to the laboratory benchtop.
