Science Signaling: 9 February 2016 issue

1 min read

The latest issue of Science Signaling is now online. This week features one study on the phosphoproteomic analysis of interacting tumor cells and endothelial cells, which identified potential therapeutic targets involved in metastasis, and another research paper that showed how the distribution of a certain opioid receptor in the plasma membrane may underlie the different signaling outcomes that its stimuli, including morphine, elicit. A Review highlights the interplay between signaling research and synthetic biology, and how cells can be engineered with the minimal machinery to endow them with new behaviors and functions. As always, the Editors' Choice section features summaries of other signaling research papers of interest.
