Should I fight or should I grow – how plants decide between defense or growth

A molecular switch shifting plant investment from defense to growth has been identified as the serine/threonine kinase TOR. New Phytologist http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/nph.14785/abstract

Bacteria have lipids rafts as well – and this may help fighting resistance to antibiotics

Resistance to antibiotics of staphylococcus aureus depends on lipid raft-like structures in the bacterial membrane and can be compromised by disrupting such „rafts“ by blocking carotenoid biosynthesis. This implies: carotenoids are important components of lipid domains in Staphylococcus aureus; resistance to methicillin depends on the existence of such domains and there is hope for a new approach of fighting MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus).

How plants created soils

Plants from a wide range of species have been demonstrated to secrete significant amounts of a prominent plant cell wall component (xyloglucan). Similar as in plant cell walls, this component has a an important structural role in soils: it improves soil particle aggregation. Roots from a wide phylogenetic range and even from very basic plants like liverworts are secreting xyloglucans. These findings allow speculations that xyloglucans may have been important in creating early soils when the first landplants colonized mainland.
