The Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry (JAFC) and the ACS Divisions of Agricultural and Food Chemistry (AGFD) and Agrochemicals (AGRO) are seeking nominations for the Research Article of the Year Award Lectureship.
Two papers will be awarded, one from each category, for an outstanding article published in 2021 (either in an issue of JAFC or ASAP) that demonstrates creativity and impact on agricultural and food chemistry as a whole.

Unraveling the Ergot Alkaloid and Indole Diterpenoid Metabolome in the Claviceps purpurea Species Complex Using LC–HRMS/MS Diagnostic Fragmentation Filtering J. Agric. Food Chem. 2021, 69, 25, 7137–7148

This research article describes an approach to evaluate the diversity of ergot alkaloids and indole diterpenoids and other important biochemical contaminants present in cereal grains using UHPLC-HRMS, molecular biology methods, statistics, and chemical profiling procedures. The data could be used to set up allowable maximum levels of ergot alkaloids in grain and cereal products.
Dr. Silvio Uhlig is a chemist and senior researcher at the Chemistry and Toxinology Research Group at Norwegian Veterinary Institute in Ås, Norway, which works broadly on different topics within toxin chemistry as well as the biology of toxin-producing organisms. He is especially interested in applying modern analytical chemistry techniques in a toxicological or biological context, such as chemotaxonomy or bioassay-guided isolation.
Dysregulation of ClpP by Small-Molecule Activators Used Against Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae Infections. J. Agric. Food Chem. 2021, 69, 27, 7545–7553

Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (Xoo) causes rice bacterial leaf blight disease. Caseinolytic protease P (ClpP) is highly conserved in the majority of bacterial species and plays a central role in protein quality control by degrading misfolded proteins. In this research article the authors determined the crystal structure of XooClpP and demonstrated a new mode of action of ClpP activators against Xoo to prevent rice bacterial leaf blight.
Dr. Song Yang is Full Professor at the Key Laboratory of Green Pesticide and Agricultural Bioengineering, Ministry of Education of China, Guizhou University. He leads the Green Pesticide and Molecular Target Discovery research group and focuses on the discovery of new agrochemical lead compounds as well as their molecular targets, and the development of green pesticides targeting agricultural bacterial and fungal disease.
Dr. Cai-Guang Yang is Full Professor at the State Key Laboratory of Drug Research and the Center for Chemical Biology at Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Since 2020, he has been an Adjunct Professor at School of Pharmaceutical Science and Technology, Hangzhou Institute for Advanced Study, University of Chinese Academy of Sciences. He leads the Chemical Biology based Drug Discovery research group and focuses on the development and application of chemical probes for functional intervention of untargeted proteins.
