1. Congratulations to Weina Wang for her publication in Plant Physiology where she identified an interesting interaction between two classes of ER-forming proteins reticulons and RHD3.

2. Dr. Yu Liang from Guangxi Normal University has recently joint the lab as a visiting professor for a year! Welcome!
3. We have recently shifted to study selective autophagy of the ER. As the first step, we published an article that RHD3, a plant atlastin GTPase acts as a receptor for selective autophagy of the ER when plants are under salt and ER stresses!
