Osteoprotection by semaphorin 3A
The bony skeleton is maintained by local factors that regulate bone-forming osteoblasts and bone-resorbing osteoclasts, in addition to hormonal activity. Osteoprotegerin protects bone by inhibitingExpand

FARP2 triggers signals for Sema3A-mediated axonal repulsion
Sema3A, a prototypical semaphorin, acts as a chemorepellent or a chemoattractant for axons by activating a receptor complex comprising neuropilin-1 as the ligand-binding subunit and plexin-A1 as theExpand

Targeted disruption of gp130, a common signal transducer for the interleukin 6 family of cytokines, leads to myocardial and hematological disorders.
gp130 is a ubiquitously expressed signal-transducing receptor component shared by interleukin 6, interleukin 11, leukemia inhibitory factor, oncostatin M, ciliary neurotrophic factor, andExpand

Class IV semaphorin Sema4A enhances T-cell activation and interacts with Tim-2
Semaphorins are a family of phylogenetically conserved soluble and transmembrane proteins. Although many soluble semaphorins deliver guidance cues to migrating axons during neuronal development, someExpand

Guidance of myocardial patterning in cardiac development by Sema6D reverse signalling
Cardiac chamber formation involves dynamic changes in myocardial organization, including trabeculation and expansion of the compact layer. The positional cues that regulate myocardial patterning,Expand

Semaphorin 7A initiates T-cell-mediated inflammatory responses through alpha1beta1 integrin.
Semaphorins are axon guidance factors that assist growing axons in finding appropriate targets and forming synapses. Emerging evidence suggests that semaphorins are involved not only in embryonicExpand

Semaphorins and their receptors in immune cell interactions
Semaphorins are newcomers to the growing panoply of immunoregulatory proteins. Members of this family were originally identified as proteins that provide axonal guidance cues during neuronalExpand

Plexin-A1 and its interaction with DAP12 in immune responses and bone homeostasis
Semaphorins and their receptors have diverse functions in axon guidance, organogenesis, vascularization and/or angiogenesis, oncogenesis and regulation of immune responses. The primary receptors forExpand

Structural basis for semaphorin signalling through the plexin receptor
Semaphorins and their receptor plexins constitute a pleiotropic cell-signalling system that is used in a wide variety of biological processes, and both protein families have been implicated inExpand

Bimodal regulation of T cell-mediated immune responses by TIM-4.
T cell Ig and mucin domain (TIM)-4 is preferentially expressed on antigen-presenting cells, and its counter-ligand, TIM-1, is thought to deliver co-stimulating signals to T cells. However, theExpand
