Lighting up FGFR signaling

Kai Zhang, Bianxiao Cui

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


In this issue of Chemistry & Biology, Kim and colleagues describe their work on optogenetic control of fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) signaling. By engineering a chimeric receptor, the authors demonstrate that FGFR intracellular signaling can be controlled in space and time by blue light.
