Structure of Semaphorins and Their Receptors
TLDR
This chapter reviews the current knowledge of molecular architecture and interactions with the aim of identifying features and properties that fit the semaphorins and their receptors for biological function and delineates the limits of the understanding of molecular mechanism in semaphors.
The sema domain.
Structural basis for semaphorin signalling through the plexin receptor
TLDR
Homodimer-to-heterodimer transitions of cell-surface plexin that result in a specific orientation of its molecular axis relative to the membrane may constitute the structural mechanism by which the ligand-binding ‘signal’ is transmitted to the cytoplasmic region, inducing GAP domain rearrangements and activation.
Receptor complexes for each of the Class 3 Semaphorins
TLDR
Experimental evidence is compiles experimental evidence describing the receptor components for the Sema3s, detailing the current state of knowledge of which components are important for signaling of eachSema3 before going on to consider possible future directions for the field.

TLDR
The role of GTPases in signaling by two plexins that have been analyzed in most detail are focused on, Plexin-A1 andPlexin-B1.
The role of the semaphorins in cancer
ABSTRACT The semaphorins were initially characterized as axon guidance factors, but have subsequently been implicated also in the regulation of immune responses, angiogenesis, organ formation, and a
Semaphorins and their Signaling Mechanisms.
TLDR
Exciting work has begun to reveal how semaphorin signaling is fine-tuned through different receptor complexes and other mechanisms to achieve specific outcomes in various cellular contexts and physiological systems.
Structural insights into semaphorins and their receptors.
Resolving the Interactions between Class 3 Semaphorin Receptors in Live Cells
TLDR
Analysis of interactions by PIE-FCCS provides a complementary approach to the existing structural and biochemical data that will aid in the development of new therapeutic strategies to target these receptors during disease.

The Chemorepulsive Activity of the Axonal Guidance Signal Semaphorin D Requires Dimerization*
TLDR
It is suggested that dimerization is a general feature of sema- phorins which depends on class-specific sequences and is important for their function.
Characterization of Neuropilin-1 Structural Features That Confer Binding to Semaphorin 3A and Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor 165*
TLDR
The identity of contact sites between Npn-1 and its semaphorin ligands are established, and they provide a foundation for understanding how NPN-1 functions as a receptor for distinct classes of ligands in vivo.
The chemorepulsive activity of secreted semaphorins is regulated by furin‐dependent proteolytic processing
TLDR
It is shown that the secreted mouse semaphorin D (SemD) is synthesized as an inactive precursor (proSemD), and becomes repulsive for sensory and sympathetic neurites upon proteolytic cleavage.
A Dominant Negative Receptor for Specific Secreted Semaphorins Is Generated by Deleting an Extracellular Domain from Neuropilin-1
TLDR
It is suggested that neuropilin-1 is a necessary component of receptor complexes for some, but not all, secreted semaphorin family members.
