ONLINE COVER This week features a Research Article that characterizes the mechanism by which the p110β isoform of the kinase PI3K is activated by Gβγ subunits downstream of G protein–coupled receptors (GPCRs). The p110β isoform can also be activated by receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs), and work in this study generated a peptide that specifically inhibited the activation of p110β by GPCRs but not by RTKs. The image shows the structures of p110β and Gβγ associated with a lipid bilayer, with the Gβγ dimer in red and yellow and the Gβγ-binding region of p110β in blue.
