The Ribosome can act as a Metabolite Multi-sensor

How can plants react to so many chemicals? Do they need a vast array of sensors? New research says not.

Establishing the cell biology of apomixis in Boechera

The genus Boechera (Brassicaceae) is comprised of both sexual and apomictic species, permitting comparative analyses of meiotic disturbances and parthenogenesis. Hybridization, polyploidy and environmental...

The cell biology of secondary cell wall biosynthesis

What is it that makes a plant get up and stay up? A new review looks at the creation of secondary cell walls. These microscopic features are the key to understanding the architecture of the plants we see around us.

Call for Papers: A Special Issue on Developmental Plant Cell Biology, in honour of Peter Barlow

From Root Biology, via Plant Cytoskeleton, Polarity, Gravity, Plant Signalling and Intelligence, Biological Rhythms up to Patterns, and Evolution of Eukaryotic Cells Recently, Peter Barlow...

Where did your cells come from?

Where did your complex cells come from? A new model literally turns an old theory inside out.

Tann-fastic, a new plant organelle(!!)

Jean-Marc Brillouet et al. have identified a new organelle in plant cells: the 'tannosome' is involved in the formation of condensed tannins.

Homage to a nanotubule…

Frequently, journals will devote a whole issue to a particular theme, maybe even to a single species (even whole journals are seemingly devoted to...

Focus on transfer cells

A study finds that manipulation of transfer cells may provide new opportunities for improving crop yield.

Waste not, want not…

A little while ago we looked at auxotrophic algae getting a helping hand from bacteria; now we’ll take a look at ‘proper plants’ that...

Free paper — Cytogenetic characterization and genome size of the medicinal plant Catharanthus roseus (L.) G. Don

The genome size and organization of the important medicinal plant Catharanthus roseus is shown to correspond to 1C = 0.76 pg (~738 Mbps) and...

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,...

Not All Pine Needles Are Identical: Lower Crown Loss in Pinus radiata

When fungal infection comes to Pinus radiata, it can run through the bottom of the crown of the tree, removing its leaves....

How do you get more DNA down a pollen tube?

A common event for flowering plants is whole genome duplication (WGD), where a plant gets extra chromosomes. It’s often studied in mature...

Simulating the effects of local adaptation and life history on the ability of plants to track climate shifts

Local adaptation is common but not universal in plants and results from the interplay of gene flow with natural selection. Gene flow...
