Light-dependent single-cell heterogeneity in the chloroplast redox state regulates cell fate in a marine diatom
Avia Mizrachi et al.
Single-cell analysis of the chloroplast redox response to high light and oxidative stress revealed light-dependent heterogeneity, and was linked to cell fate determination within isogenic diatom populations.
Reproduction: Parasites opt for the best of both worlds
Ellen Decaestecker, Lore Bulteel
The fungal parasite
employs both sexual and asexual reproduction to increase its chances of infecting the plant
Variable opportunities for outcrossing result in hotspots of novel genetic variation in a pathogen metapopulation
Anna-Liisa Laine et al.
In natural pathogen populations opportunities for sexual outcrossing vary, leading to spatial variation in genetic diversity and between-season survival.
Genetic transformation of the dinoflagellate chloroplast
Isabel C Nimmo et al.
Successful stable transformation of the dinoflagellate chloroplast genome.
Algal-fungal symbiosis leads to photosynthetic mycelium
Zhi-Yan Du et al.
The capacity for symbiosis between photosynthetic microalgae and early diverging lineages fungi was demonstrated with microscopy and stable isotope exchange of carbon and nitrogen.
Symbiosis: Algae and fungi move from the past to the future
The ability of photosynthetic algae to enter the hyphae of a soil fungus could tell us more about the evolution of these species.
Comment on 'Naked mole-rat mortality rates defy Gompertzian laws by not increasing with age'
Philip Dammann et al.
We are writing to comment on the article by Ruby et al., 2018 about aging in naked mole-rats.
Response to comment on 'Naked mole-rat mortality rates defy Gompertzian laws by not increasing with age'
J Graham Ruby et al.
We are writing to respond to the comment by Dammann et al., 2019 on our article about aging in naked mole-rats (Ruby et al., 2018).
Positive and negative incentive contrasts lead to relative value perception in ants
Stephanie Wendt et al.
Relative value perception, a basic tenant of Behavioural Economics, is demonstrated in an insect, and further shown to be driven by cognitive processes and induced by private and social information.
Wind prevents cliff-breeding birds from accessing nests through loss of flight control
Emily Shepard et al.
Even moderate winds cause auks to abort landing attempts at nest-sites, and as a result, wind characteristics may affect where these, and other seabirds, choose to breed.
Best of both worlds for parasites
