LDIP cooperates with SEIPIN and LDAP to facilitate lipid droplet biogenesis in Arabidopsis (open access)

LDIP cooperates with SEIPIN and LDAP to facilitate lipid droplet biogenesis in Arabidopsis

Article showing that a recently identified protein termed LD-associated protein [LDAP]-interacting protein (LDIP) works together with both endoplasmic reticulum-localized SEIPIN and the LD-coat protein LDAP to facilitate LD formation in Arabidopsis thaliana. The data is discussed in the context of a new model for LD biogenesis in plant cells with evolutionary connections to LD biogenesis in other eukaryotes.

Developmental changes in lignin composition are driven by both monolignol supply and laccase specificity (open access)

Developmental changes in lignin composition are driven by both monolignol supply and laccase specificity

Article proposes a model in which, during C-lignin biosynthesis, caffeyl alcohol noncompetitively inhibits oxidation of coniferyl alcohol by cell wall laccases, a process that might limit movement of coniferyl alcohol to the apoplast.

A gene based approach to test genetic association based on an optimally weighted combination of multiple traits (open access)

A gene based approach to test genetic association based on an optimally weighted combination of multiple traits

In this article, the authors propose a statistical method by Testing an Optimally Weighted Combination of Multiple traits (TOW-CM) to test the association between multiple traits and multiple variants in a genomic region (a gene or pathway). They investigate the performance of the proposed method through extensive simulation studies. Their simulation studies show that the proposed method has correct type I error rates and is either the most powerful test or comparable with the most powerful tests. Additionally, they illustrate the usefulness of TOW-CM based on a COPDGene study.

Caputo Fractional Derivative and Quantum-Like Coherence (open access)

Caputo Fractional Derivative and Quantum-Like Coherence

This article studies two forms of anomalous diffusions and discusses the joint use of these prescriptions, with a phenomenological method and a theoretical projection method, leading to two apparently different diffusion equations. The authors prove that the two diffusion equations are equivalent and design a time series that corresponds to the anomalous diffusion equation proposed.

Correlation consistent basis sets designed for density functional theory: Second-row (Al-Ar) (open access)

Correlation consistent basis sets designed for density functional theory: Second-row (Al-Ar)

Article presenting cc-pV(n+d)Z correlation consistent basis sets of double- through quintuple-ζ quality for the atoms Al-Ar that have been modified for use with density functional theory (DFT). These basis set modifications include truncation of high-angular momentum basis functions, recontraction of the s- and p-functions, and reoptimization of basis function exponents with generalized gradient approximation and hybrid-DFT functionals. The effects of basis set truncation, recontraction, and reoptimization are shown to improve convergence behavior in atomic energies as well as dissociation energies and enthalpies of formation.

Temperature-sensitive Post-translational Regulation of Plant Omega-3 Fatty-acid Desaturases Is Mediated by the Endoplasmic Reticulum-associated Degradation Pathway (open access)

Temperature-sensitive Post-translational Regulation of Plant Omega-3 Fatty-acid Desaturases Is Mediated by the Endoplasmic Reticulum-associated Degradation Pathway

Article expressing two closely related plant FAD3 genes in yeast cells and found that their enzymes produced significantly different amounts of omega-3 fatty acids and that these differences correlated to differences in rates of protein turnover. The findings indicate that Fad3 protein abundance is regulated by a combination of cis-acting degradation signals and the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway and that modulation of Fad3 protein amounts in response to temperature may represent one mechanism of homeoviscous adaptation in plants.

Substrate Specificity of LACCASE8 Facilitates Polymerization of Caffeyl Alcohol for C-Lignin Biosynthesis in the Seed Coat of Cleome hassleriana (open access)

Substrate Specificity of LACCASE8 Facilitates Polymerization of Caffeyl Alcohol for C-Lignin Biosynthesis in the Seed Coat of Cleome hassleriana

This article finds that the transcript profile of the laccase gene ChLAC8 parallels the accumulation of C-lignin during seed coat development. Recombinant ChLAC8 oxidizes caffeyl and sinapyl alcohols, generating their corresponding dimers or trimers in vitro, but cannot oxidize coniferyl alcohol. The authors propose a basis for this substrate preference based on molecular modeling/docking experiments. Suppression of ChLAC8 expression led to significantly reduced C-lignin content in the seed coats of transgenic Cleome plants. Feeding of 13C-caffeyl alcohol to the Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) caffeic acid o-methyltransferase mutant resulted in no incorporation of 13C into C-lignin, but expressing ChLAC8 in this genetic background led to appearance of C-lignin with >40% label incorporation. These results indicate that ChLAC8 is required for C-lignin polymerization and determines lignin composition when caffeyl alcohol is available.
