Chemokines activate lymphocytes by initiating signaling cascades through cell surface receptors that couple to heterotrimeric GTP-binding proteins. Thelen and Bagglioni describe why the recent proposal that these receptors form heterodimers and activate the Jak kinases for transducing signals should be viewed with caution.
