    DNA methylation in Arabidopsis has a genetic basis and shows evidence of local adaptation

    Manu J Dubin et al.
    The adaptation of Arabidopsis plants to the local environment is linked to DNA methylation.

    Hyperosmotic stress memory in Arabidopsis is mediated by distinct epigenetically labile sites in the genome and is restricted in the male germline by DNA glycosylase activity

    Anjar Wibowo et al.
    Transient adaptation to environmental fluctuations in plants is mediated through discrete epigenetic changes.

    The Arabidopsis thaliana mobilome and its impact at the species level

    Leandro Quadrana et al.
    Population genomics in Arabidopsis thaliana uncovers an extensive repertoire of active transposable element families at the species level and reveals their importance as a source of rare alleles with large effects.

    Repression of CHROMOMETHYLASE 3 prevents epigenetic collateral damage in Arabidopsis

    Ranjith K Papareddy et al.
    MicroRNA-mediated repression of a DNA methyltransferase prevents the ectopic methylation of thousands of genes based on distinct chromatin features during embryogenesis, which can reduce expression and persist for weeks afterwards.

    Visualizing formation of the active site in the mitochondrial ribosome

    Viswanathan Chandrasekaran et al.
    GTPBP7, NSUN4, and MTERF4 facilitate maturation of the peptidyl transferase center of the mitochondrial ribosome.

    SPRTN is a mammalian DNA-binding metalloprotease that resolves DNA-protein crosslinks

    Jaime Lopez-Mosqueda et al.
    SPRTN is a protease essential for the repair of cytotoxic DNA-protein cross links and this function is defective in patients afflicted with Ruijs-Aalfs syndrome -a segmental progeroid syndrome.

    Geminivirus-encoded TrAP suppressor inhibits the histone methyltransferase SUVH4/KYP to counter host defense

    Claudia Castillo-González et al.
    A viral protein hijacks the key effector of transcriptional gene silencing, Su(var)3-9, to evade host plant surveillance.

    Combinations of maternal-specific repressive epigenetic marks in the endosperm control seed dormancy

    Hikaru Sato et al.
    Analyses of cell type-specific data show that the maternal alleles of genes related to establishing and breaking seed dormancy are suppressed by different combinations of epigenetic marks in the endosperm of Arabidopsis.

    COX16 promotes COX2 metallation and assembly during respiratory complex IV biogenesis

    Abhishek Aich et al.
    Biochemical analyses show that mitochondrial COX16 assists in the process of copper insertion into COX2 and reveal a second COX16 function in linking assembly routes of the redox center-containing COX1 and COX2 subunits.

    Identification and characterisation of hypomethylated DNA loci controlling quantitative resistance in Arabidopsis

    Leonardo Furci et al.
    Analysis of epigenetic recombinant inbred lines of Arabidopsis identified four hypomethylated DNA loci controlling quantitative disease resistance, which is associated with genome-wide priming of defence genes without affecting plant growth.
