    Rap2 and TNIK control Plexin-dependent tiled synaptic innervation in C. elegans

    Xi Chen et al.
    Plexin controls the spatial distribution of synapses by locally inhibiting Rap2 small GTPase activity along the axon, and a Rap2 effector, TNIK, which also plays a key role in inhibiting synapse number.

    Peripherally administered orexin improves survival of mice with endotoxin shock

    Yasuhiro Ogawa et al.
    When the neuropeptide orexin is peripherally administered in mice with septic shock, it penetrates the blood-brain barrier and acts in the brain to improve survival through multiple autonomic and neuroendocrine pathways.

    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.

    Structural basis for activation and non-canonical catalysis of the Rap GTPase activating protein domain of plexin

    Yuxiao Wang et al.
    The crystal structures of the intracellular part of the plexin receptor in the active dimer form, and its complex with a key downstream signalling protein Rap, provide insights into how plexin initiates a signalling cascade involved in axon guidance.

    GIPC proteins negatively modulate Plexind1 signaling during vascular development

    Jorge Carretero-Ortega et al.
    Zebrafish mutants and human endothelial cell experiments reveal that GIPC family endocytic adaptors bind to the Semaphorin receptor PLEXIND1, a critical regulator of vascular development, to negatively modulate its signaling.

    Stepwise wiring of the Drosophila olfactory map requires specific Plexin B levels

    Jiefu Li et al.
    PlexB plays a multifaceted role in instructing the assembly of the Drosophila olfactory circuit through temporally-regulated expression patterns and expression level-dependent effects.

    Structural basis for the hijacking of endosomal sorting nexin proteins by Chlamydia trachomatis

    Blessy Paul et al.
    Chlamydia hijacks membrane trafficking proteins of the human host via the cytoplasmic domain of a secreted transmembrane protein.

    Hippocampus ghrelin signaling mediates appetite through lateral hypothalamic orexin pathways

    Ted M Hsu et al.
    A communication pathway linking memory processing and feeding behavior exists between the gut hormone ghrelin, the hippocampus and the hypothalamic neuropeptide orexin.
