    Stromule extension along microtubules coordinated with actin-mediated anchoring guides perinuclear chloroplast movement during innate immunity

    Amutha Sampath Kumar et al.
    Stromules induced during plant innate immunity dynamically interact and use the cytoskeleton to form and to direct the movement of chloroplasts.

    Structural basis for plant plasma membrane protein dynamics and organization into functional nanodomains

    Julien Gronnier et al.
    Unprecedented resolution of the molecular mechanisms of plant membrane protein anchoring involving phospholipids and sterols reveals the control of spatio-temporal segregation into plasma membrane nanodomains.

    Sugar promotes vegetative phase change in Arabidopsis thaliana by repressing the expression of MIR156A and MIR156C

    Li Yang et al.
    Sugar levels in leaves act as a signal for plants to switch from their juvenile to their adult form by regulating the expression of two genes.

    Host autophagy machinery is diverted to the pathogen interface to mediate focal defense responses against the Irish potato famine pathogen

    Yasin F Dagdas et al.
    Defense-related selective autophagy mediated by the antimicrobial autophagy cargo receptor NBR1/Joka2 is diverted to pathogen penetration sites to restrict plant colonization by the oomycete pathogen Phytophthora infestans.

    Viral-inducible Argonaute18 confers broad-spectrum virus resistance in rice by sequestering a host microRNA

    Jianguo Wu et al.
    The cooperative antiviral activity of two distinct AGO proteins could be exploited to provide a new strategy for controlling viral diseases in rice.

    The near-atomic cryoEM structure of a flexible filamentous plant virus shows homology of its coat protein with nucleoproteins of animal viruses

    Xabier Agirrezabala et al.
    The high-resolution structure of a filamentous flexible plant virus shows that there is structural homology between its coat protein and the nucleoproteins of an unrelated group of enveloped RNA animal viruses.

    Arabidopsis heterotrimeric G proteins regulate immunity by directly coupling to the FLS2 receptor

    Xiangxiu Liang et al.
    Heterotrimeric G proteins are coupled to and regulate plant receptor signaling, which allows optimum immune activation and enhances the production of reactive oxygen species.
