    The primary structural photoresponse of phytochrome proteins captured by a femtosecond X-ray laser

    Elin Claesson et al.
    Time-resolved crystallography provides insight into the photochemical reactions in photoreceptor proteins, explaining the earliest steps of how plants, fungi and bacteria sense red light.

    Uncovering a novel function of the CCR4-NOT complex in phytochrome A-mediated light signalling in plants

    Philipp Schwenk et al.
    The light-activated plant photoreceptor phytochrome A binds to NOT9B to displace it from the CCR4-NOT complex, thereby de-repressing light signalling.

    PCH1 integrates circadian and light-signaling pathways to control photoperiod-responsive growth in Arabidopsis

    He Huang et al.
    A conserved, circadian-regulated protein alters light perception in plants to regulate daily growth in response to changing photoperiod.

    Asymmetric activation mechanism of a homodimeric red light-regulated photoreceptor

    Geoffrey Gourinchas et al.
    Molecular insights to phytochrome activation and signal transduction over long distances enable the allosteric regulation of enzymatic effectors.

    BLADE-ON-PETIOLE proteins act in an E3 ubiquitin ligase complex to regulate PHYTOCHROME INTERACTING FACTOR 4 abundance

    Bo Zhang et al.
    The abundance of the PIF4 transcription factor, central in light and temperature signaling, is controlled by an E3 ligase encoded by BOP proteins.

    Shade-induced nuclear localization of PIF7 is regulated by phosphorylation and 14-3-3 proteins in Arabidopsis

    Xu Huang et al.
    A phosphorylation dependent translocation of PIF7 and involvement of 14-3-3 proteins reveal novel regulation mechanisms in shade signal transduction.

    Post-translational flavinylation is associated with diverse extracytosolic redox functionalities throughout bacterial life

    Raphaël Méheust et al.
    Bioinformatic and biochemical studies provide evidence that covalently bound flavins are common and participate in wide-ranging extracytosolic redox activities throughout bacterial life.

    In vitro reconstitution reveals major differences between human and bacterial cytochrome c synthases

    Molly C Sutherland et al.
    Despite the known heme attachment motif (CXXCH) in all c-type cytochromes, attachment elements recognized by human and bacterial cytochrome c biogenesis pathways are distinct, providing clear targets for differential inhibitors.

    Crystal structures of virus-like photosystem I complexes from the mesophilic cyanobacterium Synechocystis PCC 6803

    Yuval Mazor et al.
    The structure of the photosystem I (PSI) complex from Synechocystis is determined, and reaction center subunits engineered to resemble a viral PSI are found to promote promiscuous electron acceptor properties.
