Immune cells sense foreign organisms through the evolutionarily conserved family of Toll-like receptors. Signaling from these receptors relies on oligomerization of adaptor molecules. In this issue of Structure, Vynke et al. (2016) shed light on the dynamical structure of the homo- and hetero-dimerization domain of MyD88, the main adaptor utilized by Toll-like receptors.
