    Plant Trans-Golgi Network/Early Endosome pH regulation requires Cation Chloride Cotransporter (CCC1)

    Daniel W McKay et al.
    Cation chloride cotransporter CCC1 has a central function in plant cells and is the missing ion efflux component of the transport circuit necessary to regulate pH in the lumen of the trans-Golgi-network/early endosome, the major cargo hub in plant cells.

    Regulation of immune receptor kinase plasma membrane nanoscale organization by a plant peptide hormone and its receptors

    Julien Gronnier et al.
    The perception of endogenous RALF signaling peptides modulates the plasma membrane nanoscale organization of receptor kinases to regulate plant immune signaling.

    The YTHDF proteins ECT2 and ECT3 bind largely overlapping target sets and influence target mRNA abundance, not alternative polyadenylation

    Laura Arribas-Hernández et al.
    The Arabidopsis N6-methyladenosine (m6A) binding proteins ECT2 and ECT3 act redundantly in the cytoplasm to regulate m6A-containing mRNAs whose abundances are reduced in ect2/ect3/ect4 knockout plants although the locations of their polyadenylation sites remain unaffected, contrary to currently held beliefs.

    Principles of mRNA targeting via the Arabidopsis m6A-binding protein ECT2

    Laura Arribas-Hernández et al.
    The Arabidopsis N6-methyladenosine (m6A)-binding protein ECT2 binds to m6A in the canonical RR[m6A]CH motif, not a plant-specific motif as previously thought, and its intrinsically disordered region contributes to mRNA binding via contacts with U-rich motifs.

    Wild cereal grain consumption among Early Holocene foragers of the Balkans predates the arrival of agriculture

    Emanuela Cristiani et al.
    A consistent pattern of consumption of Triticeae tribe grasses documented in the Danube Gorges of the Balkans since the Early Mesolithic might have facilitated a quick uptake of domesticated cereals due to a developed cultural taste and specific stone tool processing technology.

    The decrotonylase FoSir5 facilitates mitochondrial metabolic state switching in conidial germination of Fusarium oxysporum

    Ning Zhang et al.
    The decrotonylase FoSir5 modulates ATP synthesis that supports conidial germination in Fusarium oxysporum through coordinated lysine decrotonylation in different organelles.

    A coupled mechano-biochemical model for cell polarity guided anisotropic root growth

    Marco Marconi et al.
    The spatial-temporal computer model of plant root meristem combines biomechanics and biochemical scales to reveal design principles underlying cell polarity and anisotropic growth during root development.

    The induction of pyrenoid synthesis by hyperoxia and its implications for the natural diversity of photosynthetic responses in Chlamydomonas

    Peter Neofotis et al.
    The algal pyrenoid is formed at high O2 levels, even when CO2 is high, implying that a product of photosynthesis, most likely H2O2 acts as a signal.

    Photosynthesis: Oxygen overload

    Britta Foerster
    A structure that helps algae photosynthesize when carbon dioxide levels are low may also play a role during hyperoxia conditions.

    Expression of a CO2-permeable aquaporin enhances mesophyll conductance in the C4 species Setaria viridis

    Maria Ermakova et al.
    The SiPIP2;7 aquaporin is a functional CO2 pore that can be used to improve CO2 diffusion at the interface between the airspace and leaf mesophyll which limits C4 photosynthesis.
