Anti-tumor Immunity Controlled Through mRNA m6A and YTHDF1 in Dendritic Cells[Feb 14, 2019]

Researchers from Beijing Institute of Genomics of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Tsinghua University and University of Chicago, have revealed how the messenger RNA (mRNA) N6-methyadenosine (m6A) methylation affect antigen-specific CD8+ T cell antitumor response by regulating translation of lysosomal cathepsins in dendritic cells.

Scientists Discover Immune Cell Types and Secreted Factors Contributing Tissue Inflammation-to-cancer Transition and Immune Therapy Response[Feb 12, 2019]

Recently, a team led by Prof. Jing-Dong Jackie HAN from CAS-MPG Partner Institute for Computational Biology, Shanghai Institute of Nutrition and Health of Chinese Academy of Sciences developed a computational network analysis package called "SwitchDetector". Using it, they integrated the expression profiles of normal tissues and tissues with inflammation, using samples from liver, esophageal and colon cancers, and found that angiogenesis is a common event during the inflammation-to-cancer (I2C) transition in multiple cancers.

SPAD-502 is More Suitable for Measuring Chlorophyll Content of Lichens[Feb 13, 2019]

Researchers from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) compared the non-destructive methods with traditional methods and evaluated their applicability in studying lichen pigment content. They aimed to determine the empirical relationship between chlorophyll meter readings and pigment content of thalli of different lichen species. They also wanted to determine which instrument is more accurate and, therefore, more suitable for measuring the chlorophyll content of lichens.

BESIII Accumulates 10 Billion J/ψ Events[Feb 11, 2019]

The BESIII detector finished accumulating a sample of 10 billion J/ψ events together with a continuum data sample on Feb. 11. The 10 billion J/ψ-event sample accumulated at BESIII is the world's largest data sample produced directly from electron-positron annihilations.
