Mechanical Shielding in Plant Nuclei

Researchers unravel the nuclearresponse to hyperosmotic stress inplants. Nuclear shrinking and stiffeningcorrelate with high expression levels oftouch response genes. The functionalanalysis of the GIP/MZT1 proteins revealsa role of nuclear envelope factors in thisresponse and may help us to betterunderstand how plants resist drought.
