Two important new reports identify endocytosis of EphB-ephrinB complexes as a mechanism for switching between cell-cell adhesion and repulsion following plasma membrane contact. Together with the previously described shedding of ephrinA following EphA engagement, these findings resolve the paradox of how an adhesive receptor-ligand interaction generates a repulsive cellular response.
