    Antimicrobial peptide expression in a wild tobacco plant reveals the limits of host-microbe-manipulations in the field

    Arne Weinhold et al.
    The attempt to manipulate a microbiome in planta to study the ecological consequences under field conditions leaves plants and their microbes surprisingly unimpressed.

    Essential function of the alveolin network in the subpellicular microtubules and conoid assembly in Toxoplasma gondii

    Nicolò Tosetti et al.
    A combination of high-resolution microscopy and reverse genetics identified key components of the alveolin network playing an essential role in the assembly of subpellicular microtubules and conoid in Toxoplasma gondii..

    A receptor-like kinase mutant with absent endodermal diffusion barrier displays selective nutrient homeostasis defects

    Alexandre Pfister et al.
    The SCHENGEN3 protein is needed for the progression of isolated microdomains into a continuous band, which is necessary for the establishment of the major extracellular diffusion barrier in plant roots: the Casparian strip.

    Homeostasis of branched-chain amino acids is critical for the activity of TOR signaling in Arabidopsis

    Pengfei Cao et al.
    Despite BCAAs being de novo-synthesized in chloroplasts, TOR activation by BCAAs is conserved in plants and triggers a re-organization of actin and actin-associated endomembranes.

    Testing the Münch hypothesis of long distance phloem transport in plants

    Michael Knoblauch et al.
    Measurements of physiological and geometrical parameters of the sieve tube system in Ipomoea nil provide strong support for pressure driven mass flow.

    The biogenesis of CLEL peptides involves several processing events in consecutive compartments of the secretory pathway

    Nils Stührwohldt et al.
    Step-wise processing of plant peptide hormone precursors by subtilisin-like proteinases in consecutive compartments of the secretory pathway is required for formation and secretion of the bioactive peptides.

    Elucidating the mitochondrial proteome of Toxoplasma gondii reveals the presence of a divergent cytochrome c oxidase

    Azadeh Seidi et al.
    The proteins found in the mitochondria of apicomplexan parasites, including key proteins involved in energy generation, are very different from mitochondrial proteins of the animals these parasites infect.

    Toxoplasma TgATG9 is critical for autophagy and long-term persistence in tissue cysts

    David Smith et al.
    ATG9-dependent autophagy is an essential pathway for long-term survival within the cyst in the parasite Toxoplasma gondii and could be exploited in future studies seeking interventions against persistent Toxoplasma infection.

    Proteome-wide analysis of a malaria vaccine study reveals personalized humoral immune profiles in Tanzanian adults

    Flavia Camponovo et al.
    Malaria pre-exposed volunteers exhibit large breadth of humoral immune responses, with strong variation between individuals, which might compromise vaccine-induced humoral immune response due to natural imprinting.

    Identification of cryptic subunits from an apicomplexan ATP synthase

    Diego Huet et al.
    A phylum-specific ATP synthase subunit is needed for proper mitochondrial function and stability of the complex in Toxoplasma gondii.
