Integrins are receptors for extracellular matrix proteins that engage in reciprocal crosstalk with growth factor receptors. Recent work identifies a unique mechanism for the regulation of growth factor receptor phosphorylation by integrins, indicating multiple ways of achieving cooperation between these major signalling systems.
