    Out of curiosity I was studying PI3K pathways and was wondering what the 'tidyl' in phosphatidyl meant? Anything in particular or is it just another way to designate a phosphatide constituency?

    "Tidyl" is referring to the head group of the phosphatidic acid. Its saying that the phosphatidic acid has a head group (choline, serine, ect.) attached on the end of it.
