    Collagen induces activation of DDR1 through lateral dimer association and phosphorylation between dimers

    Victoria Juskaite et al.
    Ligand binding induces DDR1 kinase activity through recruitment of DDR1 receptors into signalling clusters in which phosphorylation occurs across different dimers.

    Small molecule inhibition of Csk alters affinity recognition by T cells

    Boryana N Manz et al.
    The T cell response, especially to weak agonists, is enhanced by acute Csk inhibition.

    Single-molecule functional anatomy of endogenous HER2-HER3 heterodimers

    Byoungsan Choi et al.
    Single-molecule immunoprecipitation method reveals that the high catalytic rate and multi-tasking capability make a concerted contribution to the strong signaling potency of the HER2-HER3 heterodimers.

    Optogenetic control of excitatory post-synaptic differentiation through neuroligin-1 tyrosine phosphorylation

    Mathieu Letellier et al.
    Orthogonal to traditional paradigms that manipulate neuroligin expression level, optogenetic stimulation of tyrosine phosphorylation highlights a role of the intracellular domain of endogenous neuroligin-1 in excitatory synaptic differentiation and potentiation.

    Tuned polymerization of the transcription factor Yan limits off-DNA sequestration to confer context-specific repression

    C Matthew Hope et al.
    Tuned protein–protein interaction affinity optimizes the repressive function of the ETS family transcription factor Yan in order to contribute specificity and robustness to cell fate specification in the developing Drosophila eye.

    Specific Eph receptor-cytoplasmic effector signaling mediated by SAM–SAM domain interactions

    Yue Wang et al.
    Comparative structural studies reveal how the cytoplasmic tails of Eph receptors can differentiate different downstream target proteins via highly specific SAM–SAM domain interactions.

    KIT ligand protects against both light-induced and genetic photoreceptor degeneration

    Huirong Li et al.
    A combination of in vitro and in vivo experiments demonstrate a cell-autonomous role of the KIT ligand/KIT signaling pathway in protecting retinal photoreceptor cells from environmentally or genetically caused degeneration.

    Control of cell death/survival balance by the MET dependence receptor

    Leslie Duplaquet et al.
    MET acts as a dependence receptor in vivo by promoting hepatocyte apoptosis, a response induced by a caspase generated fragment able to favor calcium exchange between endoplasmic reticulum and mitochondria.
