    Drosophila neprilysins control insulin signaling and food intake via cleavage of regulatory peptides

    Benjamin Hallier et al.
    The catalytic activity of a Drosophila neprilysin is critical to proper insulin expression and food intake by regulating homeostasis of distinct signaling peptides.

    An alternatively spliced, non-signaling insulin receptor modulates insulin sensitivity via insulin peptide sequestration in C. elegans

    Bryan A Martinez et al.
    A truncated, non-signaling insulin receptor regulates insulin sensitivity in the nematode C. elegans by sequestering insulin peptides and preventing their interaction with full length receptors.

    The manifold actions of signaling peptides on subcellular dynamics of a receptor specify stomatal cell fate

    Xingyun Qi et al.
    A binary cell fate decision to be or not to be stomata is regulated by multiple peptide ligands, each triggering a unique subcellular dynamics of their shared receptor.

    Mechanistic insight into a peptide hormone signaling complex mediating floral organ abscission

    Julia Santiago et al.
    A plant peptide hormone controls organ shedding by acting as molecular glue that promotes the interaction between two membrane receptor kinases.

    The CLAVATA receptor FASCIATED EAR2 responds to distinct CLE peptides by signaling through two downstream effectors

    Byoung Il Je et al.
    The maize CLAVATA receptor, FEA2, functions in the perception of two different ligands, and remarkably that signaling from these different inputs is differentiated by the receptor interacting with two different downstream components.

    Stimulation strength controls the rate of initiation but not the molecular organisation of TCR-induced signalling

    Claire Y Ma et al.
    The strength of TCR signalling determines the rate at which cells initiate a tightly coordinated signalling programme, without altering its organization.

    Autocrine regulation of stomatal differentiation potential by EPF1 and ERECTA-LIKE1 ligand-receptor signaling

    Xingyun Qi et al.
    The stomatal precursor cell uses autocrine peptide-receptor kinase signaling to self-inhibit its differentiation potential in order to ensure proper stomatal development on the plant epidermis.

    Impairment of cocaine-mediated behaviours in mice by clinically relevant Ras-ERK inhibitors

    Alessandro Papale et al.
    Two cell-penetrating peptides that inhibit Ras-ERK signalling and a potent clinically relevant MEK inhibitor block cocaine conditioned place preference and accelerate extinction of cocaine self-administration upon a single administration in mice.

    Profiling of myristoylation in Toxoplasma gondii reveals an N-myristoylated protein important for host cell penetration

    Malgorzata Broncel et al.
    Myristoylation of a secreted protein, identified in a global myristoylation analysis of the eukaryotic parasite Toxoplasma gondii, is important for host cell invasion.

    Echinoderms provide missing link in the evolution of PrRP/sNPF-type neuropeptide signalling

    Luis Alfonso Yañez-Guerra et al.
    Discovery of a novel neuropeptide signalling system in a deuterostome invertebrate reveals the evolutionary origin of prolactin-releasing peptide and its relationship with neuropeptides in protostome invertebrates.
