Important Research

A new study from Academia Sinica reveals why some patients clear the SARS-CoV-2 virus faster than others.
How does the immune system eradicate SARS-CoV-2-infected cells? Why does the viral clearance rate differ among patients? In a study published in Journal of Clinical Investigation, a team led by Dr. Shih-Yu Chen at the Institute of Biomedical Sciences, Academia Sinica, showed that natural killer (NK) cells are the key immune cells responsible for the rate of SARS-CoV-2 viral clearance. Specific NK subsets were enriched in patients who more rapidly cleared the virus......
Chromatin enrichment for Proteomics in Plants (ChEP-P) implicates the histone reader ALFIN-LIKE 6 in jasmonate signalling
Covalent modifications of core histones govern downstream DNA-templated processes such as transcription by altering chromatin structure and function. The plant homeodomain protein ALFIN-LIKE 6 (AL6) is a bona fide histone reader that preferentially binds trimethylated lysin 4 on histone 3. In this study, Wolfgang Schmidt’s group demonstrates that AL6 is also involved in the response of Arabidopsis seedlings to jasmonic acid (JA) during skotomorphogenesis by modulating chromatin dynamics that affect the transcriptional regulation of JA-responsive genes (Vélez-Bermúdez and Schmidt; BMC Genomics)......
Right place, right time, and right amount: the hardship of adequate iron nutrition
Insufficient iron supply poses severe constraints on plants, restricting species with inefficient iron uptake mechanisms from habitats with low iron availability and causing yield losses in agricultural ecosystems. Research into the processes that are employed by plants to adjust cellular iron homeostasis revealed an astonishingly complex puzzle of signalling nodes and circuits, which are intertwined with the perception and communication of other environmental cues such as pathogens, light, nutrient availability, and edaphic factors such as pH. In their review on ‘How plants recalibrate cellular iron homeostasis’, Isabel Vélez-Bermúdez and Wolfgang Schmidt highlight recent exciting and influential studies that have changed our understanding of plant iron nutrition.
