    Locally adaptive temperature response of vegetative growth in Arabidopsis thaliana

    Pieter Clauw, Envel Kerdaffrec ... Magnus Nordborg
    Growth of Arabidopsis seedlings at low temperatures differs between plants that hail from different parts of the world in a way that suggests climate adaptation.

    A dual-target herbicidal inhibitor of lysine biosynthesis

    Emily RR Mackie, Andrew S Barrow ... Tatiana P Soares da Costa
    The first recently discovered inhibitors of lysine biosynthesis with in planta activity have a dual-target mode of action, which provides proof-of-concept for the development of multi-target ‘resistance-resistant’ herbicides with a novel mode of action.

    A guanosine tetraphosphate (ppGpp) mediated brake on photosynthesis is required for acclimation to nitrogen limitation in Arabidopsis

    Shanna Romand, Hela Abdelkefi ... Ben Field
    Guanosine tetraphosphate (ppGpp) is a pivotal regulator of chloroplast activity that is required for acclimation to nitrogen limitation in the model plant Arabidopsis.

    Host casein kinase 1-mediated phosphorylation modulates phase separation of a rhabdovirus phosphoprotein and virus infection

    Xiao-Dong Fang, Qiang Gao ... Xian-Bing Wang
    Liquid-liquid phase separation of a rhabovirus phosphoprotein initiates viral factory formation of barley yellow striate mosaic virus, a plant negative-sense RNA virus, and host casein kinase 1-mediated phosphorylation inhibits phase separation and virus infection.

    Plant SYP12 syntaxins mediate an evolutionarily conserved general immunity to filamentous pathogens

    Hector M Rubiato, Mengqi Liu ... Mads E Nielsen
    To effectively ward off some of the most damaging groups of filamentous pathogens, plants rely on an evolutionarily conserved syntaxin function to block the pathogen from entering the host cell and proliferate.
