    Heat stress promotes longevity in budding yeast by relaxing the confinement of age-promoting factors in the mother cell

    Sandro Baldi et al.
    To promote longevity under heat stress shares yeast aging factors with progeny through a down-regulation of the diffusion barrier in the membranes between the mitotic cells.

    A regulatory module controlling stress-induced cell cycle arrest in Arabidopsis

    Naoki Takahashi et al.
    Arabidopsis deploys the core signalling module that perceives distinct stress signals, such as DNA damage and heat stresses, and represses G2/M-specific genes, thereby causing cell cycle arrest.

    Arabidopsis FORGETTER1 mediates stress-induced chromatin memory through nucleosome remodeling

    Krzysztof Brzezinka et al.
    Environmentally-mediated gene induction is extended beyond the duration of an external cue by sustaining a nucleosome-depleted chromatin structure.

    Thermoregulation: Bugs battle stress from hot blood

    Joshua B Benoit, David L Denlinger
    A heat exchange mechanism in the head of kissing bugs helps to prevent stress and regulate their temperature while they feed on warm blood.

    Pyrophosphate modulates plant stress responses via SUMOylation

    M Görkem Patir-Nebioglu et al.
    In vivo inhibition of SUMO activating E1-enzymes by pyrophosphate reveals a mode of integrating metabolism and stress tolerance that is conserved across kingdoms.

    Distinct transcriptional responses elicited by unfolded nuclear or cytoplasmic protein in mammalian cells

    Yusuke Miyazaki et al.
    A new unfolded protein response has been discovered that is distinct from the heat shock response and protects mammalian cells from proteotoxic stress.

    Muscle-specific stress fibers give rise to sarcomeres in cardiomyocytes

    Aidan M Fenix et al.
    Sarcomeres in heart muscle cells come from stress fiber-like structures that are mechanistically distinct from stress fibers in non-muscle cells.

    Brain micro-inflammation at specific vessels dysregulates organ-homeostasis via the activation of a new neural circuit

    Yasunobu Arima et al.
    A link between chronic stress and organ dysfunction is explained by the gateway reflex, in which brain micro-inflammation at specific vessels establishes a new neural pathway to induce fatal organ failure particularly in gastrointestine and heart.

    A conserved histidine modulates HSPB5 structure to trigger chaperone activity in response to stress-related acidosis

    Ponni Rajagopal et al.
    Small decreases in pH associated with cellular stress conditions unleash a cryptic mode of client binding in a ubiquitously expressed human small heat shock protein that is more effective at delaying client aggregation.

    Plant Stress: Hitting pause on the cell cycle

    Thomas Eekhout, Lieven De Veylder
    Two recently discovered transcription factors stop cells from dividing when plants face extreme heat and DNA damage.
