Regulation of Plexin

A Ring of Structural Twists and Turns

Yi Chun Kuo, Xuewu Zhang

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

The regulation of the guidance receptor plexin is incompletely understood. In this issue, Kong et al. (2016) present crystal structures of the full-length extracellular region of class A plexins, revealing its dual role in both autoinhibition and activation.
