The hematopoietic colony stimulating factor-1 receptor (CSF-1R or FMS) is
essential for the cellular repertoire of the mammalian immune system. Here, we
report a structural and mechanistic consensus for the assembly of human and mouse
CSF-1:CSF-1R complexes. The EM structure of the complete extracellular assembly
of the human CSF-1:CSF-1R complex reveals how receptor dimerization by CSF-1
invokes a ternary complex featuring extensive homotypic receptor contacts and
striking structural plasticity at the extremities of the complex. Studies by
small-angle X-ray scattering of unliganded hCSF-1R point to large domain
rearrangements upon CSF-1 binding, and provide structural evidence for the
relevance of receptor predimerization at the cell surface. Comparative structural
and binding studies aiming to dissect the assembly principles of human and mouse
CSF-1R complexes, including a quantification of the CSF-1/CSF-1R species
cross-reactivity, show that bivalent cytokine binding to receptor coupled to
ensuing receptor-receptor interactions are common denominators in extracellular
