    Integration of Tmc1/2 into the mechanotransduction complex in zebrafish hair cells is regulated by Transmembrane O-methyltransferase (Tomt)

    Timothy Erickson et al.
    A zebrafish model for a particular form of human deafness (DFNB63) changes our view of this disease by revealing a defect in the localization of Transmembrane channel-like proteins that are essential for mechanotransduction in sensory cells.

    Single methyl groups can act as toggle switches to specify transmembrane Protein-protein interactions

    Li He et al.
    The placement of single methyl groups at certain positions in the sequence of small model transmembrane proteins consisting solely of leucines and isoleucines can modulate highly specific, productive interactions with the transmembrane domain of the erythropoietin receptor.

    An allosteric Sec61 inhibitor traps nascent transmembrane helices at the lateral gate

    Andrew L MacKinnon et al.
    A small molecule, cotransin, blocks transmembrane domains form integrating into cell membranes by allosterically ‘locking’ the lateral gate of the Sec61 translocation channel.

    Implications of the differing roles of the β1 and β3 transmembrane and cytoplasmic domains for integrin function

    Zhenwei Lu et al.
    Diverse biophysical properties of β1 and β3 integrin transmembrane and cytoplasmic domains result in distinct mechanisms of integrin activation and function.

    Coincidence detection and bi-directional transmembrane signaling control a bacterial second messenger receptor

    Richard B Cooley et al.
    Building on previous work (Chatterjee et al., 2014), the mechanism of coincidence detection in bacterial second messenger signaling across membranes is revealed at a molecular level, providing insight into the regulation of a conserved transmembrane receptor.

    A toolkit for studying cell surface shedding of diverse transmembrane receptors

    Amanda N Hayward et al.
    The modularity and unequivocal input/response of Notch signaling are harnessed to measure cell-surface shedding of diverse transmembrane receptors to identify new proteolytic switches and detect modulation of proteolysis by therapeutics.

    Transmembrane chemokines act as receptors in a novel mechanism termed inverse signaling

    Kirsten Hattermann et al.
    In a new mechanism of cellular communication termed “inverse signaling", a transmembrane chemokine acts as a "receptor" for its previously shed form.

    Identification of PLXDC1 and PLXDC2 as the transmembrane receptors for the multifunctional factor PEDF

    Guo Cheng et al.
    Two membrane proteins that belong to a new type of cell-surface receptor mediate the transmembrane signaling for a secreted factor that has broad therapeutic value.

    Conformational dynamics between transmembrane domains and allosteric modulation of a metabotropic glutamate receptor

    Vanessa A Gutzeit et al.
    Single molecule subunit counting, FRET and electrophysiology experiments reveal that metabotropic glutamate receptor subunits interact and rearrange at the level of the transmembrane domains in response to allosteric modulators.
