    The CHORD protein CHP-1 regulates EGF receptor trafficking and signaling in C. elegans and in human cells

    Andrea Haag et al.
    The co-chaperone CHORDC1 is specifically required for epidermal growth factor receptor trafficking and signaling in Caenorhabditis elegans and in human cells.

    Receptor-based mechanism of relative sensing and cell memory in mammalian signaling networks

    Eugenia Lyashenko et al.
    Preferential endocytosis of activated receptors allows cells to memorize their past and perform relative sensing.

    EGF-dependent re-routing of vesicular recycling switches spontaneous phosphorylation suppression to EGFR signaling

    Martin Baumdick et al.
    Plasticity arising from autocatalytic receptor activation coexists with robustness in ligand responsiveness only by differential endosomal sorting of spontaneous and ligand-activated EGFR as distinct molecular states.

    Regulation of branching dynamics by axon-intrinsic asymmetries in Tyrosine Kinase Receptor signaling

    Marlen Zschätzsch et al.
    Asymmetric localization of the receptor EGFR within branches of axons is required to establish the precise wiring of neuronal networks within the Drosophila brain.

    Dynamics and heterogeneity of a fate determinant during transition towards cell differentiation

    Nicolás Peláez et al.
    The maturation of multi-potent immature cells in the larval eye in Drosophila is regulated by a transcription factor that displays unexpected heterogeneous dynamics during the cells’ transitions towards differentiated states.

    Structural basis of the effect of activating mutations on the EGF receptor

    Ioannis Galdadas et al.
    Computational methods reveal how mutations affect the conformational landscape of the kinase domain of EGFR resulting in abnormal signaling and provide a structural framework for ongoing drug discovery efforts on mutant-specific EGFR inhibition.

    Complementary biosensors reveal different G-protein signaling modes triggered by GPCRs and non-receptor activators

    Mikel Garcia-Marcos
    Heterotrimeric G-proteins can be switched on not only by G-protein-coupled receptors but also by cytoplasmic proteins, resulting in different signaling mechanisms in cells depending on the specific type of activator.

    Paracrine Met signaling triggers epithelial–mesenchymal transition in mammary luminal progenitors, affecting their fate

    Amandine Di-Cicco et al.
    Mammary progenitors identified by a new marker, ICAM-1, undergo epithelial-mesenchymal transition and luminal-to-basal switch in response to paracrine Met activation.

    A moth odorant receptor highly expressed in the ovipositor is involved in detecting host-plant volatiles

    Rui-Ting Li et al.
    A moth can detect plant volatiles using an odorant receptor expressing in its ovipositor, and this odorant receptor has a much higher expression level in the ovipositor than antennae.

    Dephosphorylation of the NPR2 guanylyl cyclase contributes to inhibition of bone growth by fibroblast growth factor

    Leia C Shuhaibar et al.
    Fibroblast growth factor induces dephosphorylation and inactivation of the NPR2 guanylyl cyclase, thus decreasing cyclic GMP production in growth plate chondrocytes and contributing to FGF-dependent decreases in bone growth.
