The story of nuclear diacylglycerol is proving to be a complex one. Sub-pools of nuclear diglyceride that differ in their metabolism, nuclear localization and temporal regulation have been identified, suggesting potentially diverse signaling functions. One of the great remaining challenges is to assign functional roles to these diverse populations. In the last twenty years great strides have been made toward understanding the character and composition of nuclear DAG. Determining the functions of this nuclear lipid should make the next twenty years interesting, indeed.
