    Vicia faba SV channel VfTPC1 is a hyperexcitable variant of plant vacuole Two Pore Channels

    Jinping Lu, Ingo Dreyer ... Rainer Hedrich
    Polymorphic residues of a vacuolar Ca2+ sensor site in TPC1 channels differ between species of Brassicacea and Fabaceae and lead to distinct TPC1 gating behavior.

    Characterization of tryptophan oxidation affecting D1 degradation by FtsH in the photosystem II quality control of chloroplasts

    Yusuke Kato, Hiroshi Kuroda ... Wataru Sakamoto
    Oxidative modification of Tryptophan residues in the reaction center protein D1 may be a key to drive the Photosystem II repair, likely enhancing accessibility of FtsH protease to D1.

    The Arabidopsis SHORTROOT network coordinates shoot apical meristem development with auxin-dependent lateral organ initiation

    Elmehdi Bahafid, Imke Bradtmöller ... Rüdiger GW Simon
    Mutant and gene expression analyses shows that phytohormones and mobile transcription factors interact to coordinate organ formation with stem cell maintenance in the plant shoot meristem.

    Carotenoid assembly regulates quinone diffusion and the Roseiflexus castenholzii reaction center-light harvesting complex architecture

    Jiyu Xin, Yang Shi ... Xiaoling Xu
    Investigations of the reaction center (RC)-light harvesting (LH) complex from an ancient chlorosome-less anoxygenic phototroph Roseiflexus castenholzii reveal the structural basis by which carotenoids assembly regulates the architecture and quinone exchange of bacterial RC-LH complex.
