A research team led by Prof. Liwen Jiang of the School of Life Sciences identified a novel regulator that controls the formation of multivesicular bodies (MVBs) and MVB-mediated degradation of membrane proteins in plants. These findings, shedding new light on the molecular mechanisms of organelle biogenesis and function in plants, have been published in Current Biology, a journal published by the Cell Press.
