    A forward genetic screen reveals novel independent regulators of ULBP1, an activating ligand for natural killer cells

    Benjamin G Gowen et al.
    Forward genetic screening has provided insight into the molecular mechanisms and stress pathways that promote tumor cell recognition by natural killer cells.

    Ligand recognition and gating mechanism through three ligand-binding sites of human TRPM2 channel

    Yihe Huang et al.
    High-resolution structures of human TRPM2 in different functional states provided the mechanism underlying ligand recognition, channel activation and inhibition.

    Common activation mechanism of class A GPCRs

    Qingtong Zhou et al.
    Contrary to previous findings, class A GPCRs share a common activation pathway that directly links ligand binding to G-protein activation, as revealed by novel quantitative analysis.

    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.

    Closed-loop optogenetic activation of peripheral or central neurons modulates feeding in freely moving Drosophila

    Pierre-Yves Musso et al.
    The Sip-Triggered Optogenetic Behavior Enclosure (STROBE) produces robust behaviors via activation of peripheral or central neurons in the fly, and mimics key features of feeding driven by chemical taste ligands.

    Identification of ligand-specific G protein-coupled receptor states and prediction of downstream efficacy via data-driven modeling

    Oliver Fleetwood et al.
    Ligands with different efficacy profiles shift the free energy landscape of the beta2 adrenergic receptor activation and stabilize diverse active-like states via the switch of microswitches lining an allosteric pathway.

    The ectodomains determine ligand function in vivo and selectivity of DLL1 and DLL4 toward NOTCH1 and NOTCH2 in vitro

    Lena Tveriakhina et al.
    Regions outside the major receptor binding interface of DLL1 and DLL4 contribute to context-dependent divergence of ligand function in vivo and differential Notch1 and Notch2 activation in vitro.

    Cis-activation in the Notch signaling pathway

    Nagarajan Nandagopal et al.
    Activation of Notch receptors by ligands in the same cell (cis-activation) is a prevalent and functional mode of signaling in the Notch pathway, and co-exists with trans-activation and cis-inhibition.

    Endothelial cell-derived CD95 ligand serves as a chemokine in induction of neutrophil slow rolling and adhesion

    Liang Gao et al.
    The cell surface protein CD95 mediates neutrophil slow rolling and adhesion during inflammation.

    Cis-interactions between Notch and its ligands block ligand-independent Notch activity

    William Hunt Palmer et al.
    Notch ligands expressed in the same cell as the Notch receptor are crucial to prevent accidental, ligand-independent Notch activity.
