    Active suppression of a leaf meristem orchestrates determinate leaf growth

    John Paul Alvarez et al.
    A meristem acting at the margins of Arabidopsis leaves is suppressed by factors acting primarily in leaves and other determinate organs.

    Limitations to photosynthesis by proton motive force-induced photosystem II photodamage

    Geoffry A Davis et al.
    Storage of solar energy in the thylakoid electrical field by photosynthesis in vivo can substantially destabilize charge-separated states in photosystem II, leading to singlet oxygen production and photodamage, contributing to loss of productivity, especially under fluctuating light experienced in the field.

    Hawkmoths evaluate scenting flowers with the tip of their proboscis

    Alexander Haverkamp et al.
    Building on previous work (Kessler et al., 2015), it is shown that long-tongued hawkmoths assess individual flowers by smelling floral odors with olfactory neurons on their proboscises, and that this close-range perception is crucial for successful pollination and foraging.

    The decoration of specialized metabolites influences stylar development

    Jiancai Li et al.
    Regulation of diterpene glycoside malonylation status influences stylar elongation through affecting auxin signaling in Nicotiana attenuata.

    An effector of the Irish potato famine pathogen antagonizes a host autophagy cargo receptor

    Yasin F Dagdas et al.
    A plant pathogen effector evolved a short linear motif to subvert autophagic defenses by antagonising a host cargo receptor.

    Manipulating midbrain dopamine neurons and reward-related behaviors with light-controllable nicotinic acetylcholine receptors

    Romain Durand-de Cuttoli et al.
    In vivo deconstruction of reward-related behaviors with circuit and pharmacological specificity using designer, light-controllable nicotinic acetylcholine receptors.

    Discovery of a metabolic alternative to the classical mevalonate pathway

    Nikki Dellas et al.
    A combination of phylogenetic and biochemical analyses suggest that some unexpected variations in the synthesis of isoprenoids may be widespread across all three domains of life.
