Ephs and ephrins close ranks.

The past decade has seen remarkable advances in identification of the proteins regulating axon guidance and synapse formation. Understanding the structural and molecular basis of their signaling properties is now the task at hand. The recently characterized crystal structure of the complex formed between the ligand-binding domain of EphB2 and the ectodomain of its binding partner ephrin-B2 provides an insight into the recognition and signal transduction mechanisms of this large multifunctional family of surface receptors. This heterotetrameric complex reveals a cyclic arrangement of subunits not previously seen in any receptor-ligand structure, and provides a basis for class specificity of binding.[1]
