Chemical Modification to Improve Biocompatibility of Black Phosphorus Nanosheets[Sep 22, 2017]

The research group led by Prof. YU Xuefeng from Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology of the Chinese Academic of Science, and the research group led by Prof. JIANG Guibin, from Research Center for Eco-Environmental Sciences of CAS, conducted in vitro and in vivo experiments to investigate the inflammatory effects and biocompatibility of ultra-small BPs (BPQDs) (Bare BPs) and ultra-small BPs with titanium sulfonate ligand (TiL4) modification (TiL4@BPs).

New Catalyst Synthesis Method Developed for Biodiesel Production[Sep 22, 2017]

hers from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences conducted production of biodiesel experiments in a sealed glass bottle for esterification and micro autoclave for transesterification.

Auxin Drives Leaf Flattening[Sep 22, 2017]

A new research led by JIAO Yuling from the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), showed that spatial auxin signaling defines the expression of two redundant genes WOX1 and PRS, which enables leaf blade expansion and flattening.

PrP Plays Critical Roles in Modulating Inflammatory Responses[Sep 21, 2017]

In a present study, the research group led by Prof. LI Chaoyang from Wuhan Institute of Virology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences found that when M2 cells were stimulated with TNFα, the TNFR signaling cascade was activated, leading to NF-κB activation and TNFα production. TNFα up-regulates the expression of pIKKα/?, p-p65 and p-JNK, but reduces the level of IκBα.

Watch out! Summer Rainfall over the Yangtze River Valley after Similar El Nino Events Can Be Different[Sep 19, 2017]

The rainfall over the Yangtze River valley in the summer of 2016 was much weaker than that in 1998, despite the intensity of the 2016 El Ni?o having been as strong as that in 1998. A group of scientists from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, have now revealed the remarkable role played by the mid-latitude circulation in this surprising feature.
