Control of seed dormancy by FT [Plant Biology]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Tue, 12/16/2014 - 10:07
Seasonal behavior is important for fitness in temperate environments but it is unclear how progeny gain their initial seasonal entrainment. Plants use temperature signals to measure time of year, and changes to life histories are therefore an important consequence of climate change. Here we show that in Arabidopsis the current...

Anticancer activity of Pt(II) rhomboids [Chemistry]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Tue, 12/16/2014 - 10:07
The development of novel antitumor agents that have high efficacy in suppressing tumor growth, have low toxicity to nontumor tissues, and exhibit rapid localization in the targeted tumor sites is an ongoing avenue of research at the interface of chemistry, cancer biology, and pharmacology. Supramolecular metal-based coordination complexes (SCCs) have...

Kinetic pathway of 40S recruitment to HCV IRES [Biophysics and Computational Biology]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Tue, 12/16/2014 - 10:07
Translation initiation can occur by multiple pathways. To delineate these pathways by single-molecule methods, fluorescently labeled ribosomal subunits are required. Here, we labeled human 40S ribosomal subunits with a fluorescent SNAP-tag at ribosomal protein eS25 (RPS25). The resulting ribosomal subunits could be specifically labeled in living cells and in vitro....
