Meiotic DNA Repair in the Nucleolus Employs a Non-homologous End Joining Mechanism
Ribosomal RNA genes are arranged in large arrays with hundreds of rDNA units in tandem. These highly repetitive DNA elements pose a risk to genome stability since they can undergo ... read more
An EDS1-SAG101 Complex is Essential for TNL-mediated Immunity in Nicotiana benthamiana
Heterodimeric complexes containing the lipase-like protein ENHANCED DISEASE SUSCEPTIBILITY1 (EDS1) are regarded as central regulators of plant innate immunity. In this context, a complex of EDS1 with PHYTOALEXIN DEFICIENT4 (PAD4) ... read more
Resistance on Tap: PDR Transporters Direct Antimicrobial Metabolites Towards Invading Pathogens
Coordinated regulation of pre-mRNA splicing by the SFPS-RRC1 complex to promote photomorphogenesis
Light signals perceived by the phytochrome family of photoreceptors control gene expression at both transcriptional and post-transcriptional levels to promote photomorphogenesis. Recently, we identified a factor called SPLICING FACTOR FOR ... read more
The Plant Cell publishes novel research of special significance in plant biology, especially in the areas of cellular biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, development, and evolution. The primary criteria for publication are that the article provides new insight that is of broad interest to plant biologists, not only to specialists, and that the presentation of results is appropriate for a wide audience of plant biologists.

Techniques to isolate the RNA molecules bound to a specific protein, via co-immunoprecipitation, for instance, have been available for years. The converse—methods to identify the proteins bound to a specific RNA—have been harder to come by, in part because of difficulty in elucidating the determinants…

How many genes control a phenotype? Dozens? Hundreds? Thousands? The whole genome? And what about the epigenome? Such fascinating questions on biological complexity and the interaction between genes and the environment (or, in the case of infection by a plant pathogen, multiple genomes) have long…
