    Expression of SREBP-1c Requires SREBP-2-mediated Generation of a Sterol Ligand for LXR in Livers of Mice

    Shunxing Rong et al.
    SREBP-2 directly regulates genes involved in cholesterol homeostasis and indirectly regulates fatty acid synthesis through the production of a ligand responsible for the activation of LXR and SREBP-1c.

    Structures of two aptamers with differing ligand specificity reveal ruggedness in the functional landscape of RNA

    Andrew John Knappenberger et al.
    RNA aptamers that are closely related and share a common scaffold can readily adapt to recognize new ligands through changes in just a few nucleotides.

    Selective and regulated trapping of nicotinic receptor weak base ligands and relevance to smoking cessation

    Anitha P Govind et al.
    The smoking cessation drug varenicline (Chantix) and other weak base ligands reduce a4b2-type nicotinic receptor (a4b2R) upregulation through slow intracellular release due to selective trapping in acidic vesicles that contain a4b2Rs.

    Release-dependent feedback inhibition by a presynaptically localized ligand-gated anion channel

    Seika Takayanagi-Kiya et al.
    An anion-selective ligand gated channel acts as a presynaptic auto-receptor to modulate vesicle release and neuronal excitation.

    Control of immune ligands by members of a cytomegalovirus gene expansion suppresses natural killer cell activation

    Ceri A Fielding et al.
    The human cytomegalovirus US12 gene family work co-operatively to degrade large numbers of immune ligands and prevent recognition by natural killer cells.

    Structure and dynamics underlying elementary ligand binding events in human pacemaking channels

    Marcel P Goldschen-Ohm et al.
    Single-molecule resolution of cAMP binding to the ligand binding domain of pacemaking channels in zero-mode waveguides reveals the dynamics of the distinct steps underlying both binding and isomerization of the binding domain.

    Structural basis for ligand and innate immunity factor uptake by the trypanosome haptoglobin-haemoglobin receptor

    Harriet Lane-Serff et al.
    The structure of the trypanosome haptoglobin-haemoglobin receptor bound to its ligand reveals the molecular basis for ligand recognition in innate immunity and identifies molecular determinants that aid efficient uptake.

    Differential TAM receptor–ligand–phospholipid interactions delimit differential TAM bioactivities

    Erin D Lew et al.
    Signaling by TAM receptor tyrosine kinases requires the coincident engagement of a TAM ligand with both its receptor and the phospholipid phosphatidylserine.
