The regulatory switch from protection to assimilation, which plants use to exploit natural, fluctuating light, involves movement of the enzyme ferredoxin:NADP(H) oxidoreductase between chloroplast membrane complexes.
An iron-sensitive gene cluster encodes proteins that co-localize with phytotransferrin endosomes and are involved in key intracellular iron transformation and trafficking processes in a model marine diatom.
Phase separation of two-component multivalent systems is suppressed at rational polymer stoichiometries, suggesting possible cellular strategies for regulating the formation and function of biomolecular condensates.
Light-harvesting complex stress-related is a protein from photosynthetic green algae that prevents damage from sunlight via two distinct conformational processes, which protect against different timescales of solar fluctuations.
Exploring natural Hsp104 variation reveals unexpected tuning of a passive activity that inhibits aggregation of specific substrates to selectively counter TDP-43 or alpha-synuclein proteotoxicity connected to neurodegenerative disease.
