    Regulation of photosynthetic electron flow on dark to light transition by ferredoxin:NADP(H) oxidoreductase interactions

    Manuela Kramer et al.
    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.

    Proximity proteomics in a marine diatom reveals a putative cell surface-to-chloroplast iron trafficking pathway

    Jernej Turnšek et al.
    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.

    Bardet–Biedl syndrome 3 protein promotes ciliary exit of the signaling protein phospholipase D via the BBSome

    Yan-Xia Liu et al.
    Bardet–Biedl syndrome 3 (BBS3) protein promotes phospholipase D to load onto the BBSome at the ciliary tip for moving out of the cilium via intraflagellar transport.

    Decoding the physical principles of two-component biomolecular phase separation

    Yaojun Zhang et al.
    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.

    Identification of distinct pH- and zeaxanthin-dependent quenching in LHCSR3 from Chlamydomonas reinhardtii

    Julianne M Troiano et al.
    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.

    Therapeutic genetic variation revealed in diverse Hsp104 homologs

    Zachary M March et al.
    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.

    Altered N-glycan composition impacts flagella-mediated adhesion in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii

    Nannan Xu et al.
    Adhesion force measurements reveal that proper N-glycosylation of flagellar membrane proteins is crucial for adhering C. reinhardtii cells onto surfaces.

    Photosynthetic sea slugs induce protective changes to the light reactions of the chloroplasts they steal from algae

    Vesa Havurinne, Esa Tyystjärvi
    Slug chloroplasts avoid damage to photosynthesis by maintaining an oxidized electron transfer chain with the help of oxygen-sensitive electron acceptors.

    Functional exploration of heterotrimeric kinesin-II in IFT and ciliary length control in Chlamydomonas

    Shufen Li et al.
    Experimental and modelling analyses suggest a non-linear scaling relationship between IFT velocity and ciliary length that can be accounted for by limitation of the motors.
