A close-up view of Cardmine hirsuta’s flight jacket

Being rooted, plants have very little opportunity to travel. They can as pollen to find a mate, and also as seeds. In...

The SAUR41 subfamily of genes is involved in cell expansion and salt tolerance

The SAUR41 genes are ABA inducible and active during seedling establishment.

Drought stress in Arabidopsis species

Water limitation is an important determinant of the distribution, abundance and diversity of plant species. Yet, little is known about how the response to...

Composition and physicochemical properties of outer mucilage from seeds of Arabidopsis natural accessions

Poulain et al. present a dataset describing six traits for polysaccharides extracted from the outer mucilage for 306 natural Arabidopsis thaliana accessions.

Salicylic acid-independent responses in PI4K mutants

Arabidopsis thaliana is the lab rat of plant sciences. Mutants tweaked in certain genes can show the effects of hormones on plants, but it...

Functional and chemical characterization of XAF

Plants rely on stiff cells walls for support. But these same cell walls have to be flexible to grow when required. Nguyen-Phan and Fry...

Nitrate nutrition improves energy efficiency under hypoxic stress

Plants take up and assimilate nitrogen (N) in the form of nitrate (NO3-) or ammonium (NH4+), or a combination of both. When oxygen availability...

Characterization of a CONSTANS-Like gene induced in spaceflight

The complex networks and signalling pathways that equip plants to cope with environmental challenges in terrestrial environments developed over evolutionary time. Exposing plants to...

Calcium signaling regulates the protein VIP1 in touch responses in Arabidopsis

How can plants perceive mechanical stress such as touch? Calcium and several proteins are known to be involved, but it is still unclear how...

COI1-dependent growth, proteomic and metabolomic changes

Plant cell suspensions provide a model to study the apoplast and to monitor metabolic and cell cycle-related changes. Bömer et al. frame a case...

Changes in How a Plant Breathes Aren’t Always Matched by Changes in Its Anatomy

You can't predict how a Yucca gloriosa will react to drought from its anatomy alone.

New grapevine model better predicts whole-canopy gas exchange

Models considering only the maximum photosynthetic capacity for all leaves over-estimated net carbon dioxide exchange by nearly a third.

Phylogeny, age and adaptive evolution of genus Allium

The genus Allium L., one of the largest monocotyledonous genera and one that includes many economically important crops with nutritional and medicinal...

Plants from different climates can react to drought in similar ways

How do plants react when circumstances change? One method can be to evolve a local adaptation. Another can be be phenotypic plasticity,...
