Abstract

In this issue of Structure, Xiao et al. (2015) describe a new mechanism of regulation of lipid binding. Structural and functional studies demonstrate that Tom1 interactions with the cargo sorting protein Tollip induce the partially unfolded Tom1-binding domain of Tollip to fold. This folding modulates lipid binding of Tollip, mediating its dissociation from PI(3)P and committing Tollip to cargo trafficking.
