Ephrins are cell surface-associated ligands for Eph receptors and are important regulators of morphogenic processes such as axon guidance and angiogenesis. Transmembrane ephrinB ligands act as "receptor-like" signaling molecules, in part mediated by tyrosine phosphorylation and by engagement with PDZ domain proteins. However, the underlying cell biology and(More)
Eph receptors and their membrane-associated ephrin ligands mediate cell-cell repulsion to guide migrating cells and axons. Repulsion requires that the ligand-receptor complex be removed from the cell surface, for example by proteolytic processing of the ephrin ectodomain. Here we show that cell contact-induced EphB-ephrinB complexes are rapidly endocytosed(More)
