    Membrane receptors, key components in signal transduction, often function as dimers. These include some G protein-coupled receptors such as metabotropic glutamate (mGlu) receptors that have large extracellular domains (ECDs) where agonists bind.

    The article discusses two studies that show contrasting models for the machinations of the measles virus attachment protein. It states that first model shows that the two heads of an MV-H dimer might twist relative to each other upon receptor binding, while the second model reveals that MV-H...
