LAG3 disrupts the TCR signal by local acidification

"Local change in pH, driven by clustering of LAG3 acidic stretches in its cytoplasmic disordered region, lead to dissociation of Lck/CD4 or CD8 signaling clusters. This is a novel mechanism controlling the T-cell signalling."

LAG3 associates with TCR-CD3 complexes and suppresses signaling by driving co-receptor-Lck dissociation

"Who needs membranes when you can form vesicles by complex coacervation of proteins with RNA? Another excellent paper by Banerjee lab."
