    Small molecule induced oligomerization, clustering and clathrin-independent endocytosis of the dopamine transporter

    Tatiana Sorkina et al.
    Dopamine transporter (DAT) interaction with furopyrimidine called AIM-100 in intact cells leads to dramatic oligomerization, nanoclustering and endocytosis of DAT by a novel mechanism coupled to the transporter molecule conformation.

    Structure analyses reveal a regulated oligomerization mechanism of the PlexinD1/GIPC/myosin VI complex

    Guijun Shang et al.
    PlexinD1 binding releases GIPC autoinhibition, leading to formation of high-order oligomers of the GIPC/myosin VI complex.

    Limited dishevelled/Axin oligomerization determines efficiency of Wnt/β-catenin signal transduction

    Wei Kan et al.
    In vitro and in cellulo characterization of oligomerization by the cytoplasmic Wnt effector dishevelled and its partner Axin provide new mechanistic principles for Wnt/β-catenin signaling.

    The homo-oligomerisation of both Sas-6 and Ana2 is required for efficient centriole assembly in flies

    Matthew A Cottee et al.
    The structure of the Ana2 Central Coiled-Coil Domain provides insight into how centriolar cartwheel components may be recruited and assembled, and indicates that cartwheel assembly involves more than just SAS-6 oligomerisation.

    Oligomerization of p62 allows for selection of ubiquitinated cargo and isolation membrane during selective autophagy

    Bettina Wurzer et al.
    Oligomerization of p62/SQSTM1 generates high avidity binding regions that enable it to spatially select for concentrated ubiquitin and ATG8-family proteins.

    Oligomerization of a molecular chaperone modulates its activity

    Tomohide Saio et al.
    A combined NMR and kinetic study demonstrates how the dynamic transition of a molecular chaperone between different oligomerization states can modulate its activity by altering the binding kinetics and energetics of non-native proteins.

    Phosphoinositide-mediated oligomerization of a defensin induces cell lysis

    Ivan KH Poon et al.
    A novel innate defense mechanism of cell lysis involves the coordinated oligomerization of a defensin by interaction with the membrane lipid, phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate.

    Guanidine hydrochloride reactivates an ancient septin hetero-oligomer assembly pathway in budding yeast

    Courtney R Johnson et al.
    A naturally-occurring small molecule acts as a chemical chaperone in vivo to alter the folding of a budding yeast septin and promote an oligomerization pathway that was lost during evolution.

    Structural basis of host recognition and biofilm formation by Salmonella Saf pili

    Longhui Zeng et al.
    SafDAA-SafDAA structure and functional characterizations reveal a pili-mediated inter-cellular oligomerization mechanism for bacterial aggregation and biofilm formation in Salmonella enterica.
