Featured series: Short linear motifs - the unexplored frontier of the eukaryotic proteome

© Toby J Gibson <i>et al</i> 2015Short linear motifs (SLiMs) guide the life of proteins from translation to destruction, directing their interactions, modification state, localisation and stability. The human proteome has been estimated to contain more than a hundred thousand – possibly up to a million – SLiM instances. Yet, to date, only a small fraction of the complete motif repertoire has been characterised and we still know relatively little about these elegantly simple protein interaction modules.

STS/CCS Honorary medal

In 2010 the Signal Transduction Society, together with Cell Communication and Signaling, introduced the STS/CCS Honorary Medal that celebrates the accomplishments of world leaders in cell signaling research.

Recipients of this Honorary Medal are so far:

Cell Communication and Signaling sponsors the 'International Lecture Series on Disease Biology and Molecular Medicine' which is organized by the Medical Faculty of the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg with support from the City of Halle. The International Lecture Series on Disease Biology and Molecular Medicine showcases a wide range of biomedical research areas and fosters collaboration in the scientific community.
