Hydroxylation of jasmonoyl-L-isoleucine Impairs Nicotiana attenuata's Resistance to Generalist Herbivore Spodoptera litura[Apr 06, 2016]

Prof. WU Jianqiang' team at the Kunming Institute of Botany of Chinese Academy of Sciences investigated how a wild tobacco plant copes with insect herbivory. This work is helpful to understand plant defense mechanisms and to generate inducible resistance to herbivores in crops.

Morphology and DNA Evidence Help the Identification of Three Climbing Bamboos[Apr 06, 2016]

Prof. LI Dezhu's group at the Kunming Institute of Botany of Chinese Academy of Sciences has been focusing on the taxonomy, molecular phylogeny, and biogeography of Asian bamboos for three decades. They collected two distinct climbing bamboo species in southern and southeastern Yunnan and carried out molecular phylogenetic analyses to confirm their identities.

Human Helicase RECQL4 Drives Cisplatin Resistance in Gastric Cancer[Apr 06, 2016]

Using gastric cancer cells as model, the studies of Dr. ZHAO Yongliang’s group from Key Laboratory of Genomic and Precision Medicine, Beijing Institute of Genomics, Chinese Academy of Sciences revealed that the human helicase RECQL4 drives cisplatin resistance in gastric cancer by activating an AKT-YB1-MDR1 signaling pathway. The work has been published online in Cancer Research on March 24.
