Abstract An interpretation of alternative crystal structures of the erythropoietin receptor, with and without ligand, led to the proposal of a scissor-like mechanism of activation. This model has been propagated in the literature and is still being used to interpret crystal structures of related type-I cytokine receptors. Here, we assess whether the model remains compatible with current knowledge on the family of type-I cytokine receptors, and consider whether the model, as initially presented, is truly supported by the crystal structures on which it was originally based.
