    ECS1 and ECS2 suppress polyspermy and the formation of haploid plants by promoting double fertilization

    Yanbo Mao, Thomas Nakel ... Rita Groß-Hardt
    The endopeptidases ECS1 and ECS2 regulate double fertilization and their modulation is a powerful tool for the induction of haploids and the formation of triparental plants, which are two agronomically relevant breeding targets.

    The AUX1-AFB1-CNGC14 module establishes a longitudinal root surface pH profile

    Nelson BC Serre, Daša Wernerová ... Matyáš Fendrych
    Plant roots can rapidly change the acidity of their cell walls and the root-soil interface to efficiently navigate in the soil environment.

    Environment as a limiting factor of the historical global spread of mungbean

    Pei-Wen Ong, Ya-Ping Lin ... Cheng-Ruei Lee
    After domestication, the cultivation range expansion of crops was not solely dictated by human activity but instead constrained by climatic factors, which in turn resulted in distinct phenotypic characteristics of locally adaptive landraces.

    Why did glutamate, GABA, and melatonin become intercellular signalling molecules in plants?

    Yaron Caspi, Chrysoula K Pantazopoulou ... Kaisa Kajala
    Recent findings about the possible intercellular signalling role of glutamate, GABA, and melatonin might help to establish hypotheses concerning the evolutionary factors that caused intercellular organisms to use specific molecules in intercellular signalling.

    Effector target-guided engineering of an integrated domain expands the disease resistance profile of a rice NLR immune receptor

    Josephine HR Maidment, Motoki Shimizu ... Mark J Banfield
    Effector target-guided engineering has developed plant NLR immune receptors that bind and recognize stealthy pathogen effector proteins, demonstrating new disease resistance profiles in planta, and offering a promising approach to protect crops against plant pathogens.

    The autophagy receptor NBR1 directs the clearance of photodamaged chloroplasts

    Han Nim Lee, Jenu Varghese Chacko ... Marisa S Otegui
    Photodamaged chloroplasts are targeted for vacuolar degradation through microautophagy by the NBR1 autophagy receptor without the participation of the canonical autophagy machinery.
