Purification and Cryo-electron Microscopy Analysis of Plant Mitochondrial Ribosomes
Authors:  Florent Waltz, Philippe Giegé and Yaser Hashem, date: 08/05/2021, view: 2104, Q&A: 0

Plants make up by far the largest part of biomass on Earth. They are the primary source of food and the basis of most drugs used for medicinal purposes. Similarly to all eukaryotes, plant cells also use mitochondria for energy production. Among

Localizing Genome Segments and Protein Products of a Multipartite Virus in Host Plant Cells
Authors:  Marie-Stephanie Vernerey, Elodie Pirolles, Stephane Blanc and Anne Sicard, date: 12/05/2019, view: 3107, Q&A: 0
A founding paradigm in virology is that the spatial unit of the viral replication cycle is an individual cell. This concept applied to multipartite viruses–which have a genome composed of two or more nucleic acid segments, each individually ...
