Methane oxidation by an extremely acidophilic bacterium of the phylum Verrucomicrobia
Aerobic methanotrophic bacteria consume methane as it diffuses away from methanogenic zones of soil and sediment. They act as a biofilter to reduce methane emissions to the atmosphere, and they areExpand

Rapid movement of axonal neurofilaments interrupted by prolonged pauses
Axonal cytoskeletal and cytosolic proteins are synthesized in the neuronal cell body and transported along axons by slow axonal transport, but attempts to observe this movement directly in livingExpand

Strigolactone Signaling in Arabidopsis Regulates Shoot Development by Targeting D53-Like SMXL Repressor Proteins for Ubiquitination and Degradation[OPEN]
D53-like SMXLs regulate shoot branching and leaf development through the strigolactone signaling pathway by forming a complex with TPR2 and repressing transcription in Arabidopsis. StrigolactonesExpand

OsLIC, a Novel CCCH-Type Zinc Finger Protein with Transcription Activation, Mediates Rice Architecture via Brassinosteroids Signaling
Rice architecture is an important agronomic trait and a major limiting factor for its high productivity. Here we describe a novel CCCH-type zinc finger gene, OsLIC (Oraza sativa leaf and tiller angleExpand

Transcriptional corepressor TOPLESS complexes with pseudoresponse regulator proteins and histone deacetylases to regulate circadian transcription
Circadian clocks are ubiquitous molecular time-keeping mechanisms that coordinate physiology and metabolism and provide an adaptive advantage to higher plants. The central oscillator of the plantExpand

Stem Cell Dynamics in Response to Nutrient Availability
When nutrient availability becomes limited, animals must actively adjust their metabolism to allocate limited resources and maintain tissue homeostasis. However, it is poorly understood how tissuesExpand

Independently silencing two JAR family members impairs levels of trypsin proteinase inhibitors but not nicotine
Jasmonic acid (JA)–amino acid conjugates are important JA metabolites that activate JA responses. However, our understanding of their involvement in herbivore defenses is limited. We identified a newExpand

KT/HAK/KUP potassium transporters gene family and their whole-life cycle expression profile in rice (Oryza sativa)
KT/HAK/KUP potassium transporter protein-encoding genes constitute a large family in the plant kingdom. The KT/HAK/KUP family is important for various physiological processes of plant life. In thisExpand
