A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Integrins are bidirectional transmembrane receptors that play central roles in hemostasis and arterial thrombosis. They have been subject to structural studies for many years, in particular using X-ray crystallography, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and two-dimensional negative stain electron microscopy. Despite considerable progress, a full consensus on the molecular mechanism of integrin activation is still lacking. Three-dimensional reconstructions of full-length human platelet integrin αIIbβ3 in lipid-bilayer nanodiscs obtained by electron cryo-microscopy and single-particle reconstruction have shed new light on the activation process. These studies show that integrin αIIbβ3 exists in a continuous conformational equilibrium ranging from a compact nodular conformation similar to that obtained in crystal structures to a fully extended state with the leg domains separated. This equilibrium is shifted towards the extended conformation when extracellular ligands, cytosolic activators and lipid-bilayer nanodiscs are added. Addition of cytosolic activators and extracellular ligands in the absense of nanodiscs produces significantly less dramatic shifts, emphasizing the importance of the membrane bilayer in the activation process.
