The Eukaryotic-Like Ser/Thr Kinase PrkC Regulates the Essential WalRK Two-Component System in Bacillus subtilis

Elizabeth Libby and colleagues investigated signalling systems in Bacillus subtilis. They found that the response regulator of an essential two-component signalling system is phosphorylated by a eukaryotic-like Ser/Thr kinase, increasing its activity.

Multilayered Organization of Jasmonate Signalling in the Regulation of Root Growth

Taking roots as a model, Debora Gasperini and colleagues show that it is possible to manipulate regulatory layers in jasmonate signalling such that cell division and cell elongation can be constrained without impacting plant productivity. This approach may lead to future strategies to alter organ growth.

Npvf: Hypothalamic Biomarker of Ambient Temperature Independent of Nutritional Status

Julia Jaroslawska and colleages show that upon cold exposure lean mice maintain body composition but increase food intake to fuel thermogenesis, whereas cold-exposed mice with DIO utilize endogenous fat stores and then transition to increased food intake as body composition approaches that of the lean controls.
