• #### Different reprogramming propensities in plants and mammals: Are small variations in the core network wirings responsible? ﻿

(Public Library of Science, 2017-04-06)
Although the plant and animal kingdoms were separated more than 1,6 billion years ago, multicellular development is for both guided by similar transcriptional, epigenetic and posttranscriptional machinery. One may ask to ...
• #### Identification of factors required for m$^{6}$A mRNA methylation in $\textit{Arabidopsis}$ reveals a role for the conserved E3 ubiquitin ligase HAKAI. ﻿

(Wiley, 2017-07-01)
$\textit{N}$6-adenosine methylation m$^{6}$A of mRNA is an essential process in most eukaryotes, but its role and the status of factors accompanying this modification are still poorly understood. Using combined methods of ...
• #### BRC1 expression regulates bud activation potential but is not necessary or sufficient for bud growth inhibition in $\textit{Arabidopsis}$ ﻿

(The Company of Biologists, 2017-05-02)
The degree of shoot branching in $\textit{Arabidopsis}$ is determined by the activation of axillary buds. Bud activity is regulated by diverse environmental and developmental signals, often mediated via plant hormones, ...
• #### Phloem unloading in Arabidopsis roots is convective and regulated by the phloem-pole pericycle. ﻿

(eLife Sciences Publications, 2017-02-23)
In plants, a complex mixture of solutes and macromolecules is transported by the phloem. Here, we examined how solutes and macromolecules are separated when they exit the phloem during the unloading process. We used a ...
