Prof. LIU Pingsheng's group at Institute of Biophysics (IBP) of Chinese Academy of Sciences developed a new system to construct and purify nano-particles that consist of monolayer phospholipids and neutral lipid core, which resembles the structure of LDs without proteins. They termed this structure "adiposome", in analogy to the "liposome". In this study, entitled "Construction of Nano-Droplet/Adiposome and Artificial Lipid Droplets", was published online in ACS Nano.
Although non-thermal plasma has been predicted as a potential method in cancer therapy, profiling of non-thermal plasma-induced gene expression and regulation of signal pathways still remains unknown. Lately, a study team from Radiation Division, center of medical physics and technology, Hefei Institutes of Physical Sciences, Chinese Academy of Science (CAS) reports new progress in study of non-thermal plasma-induced gene expression profiling and cell signaling pathways identification performing with non-small-cell lung cancer A549 cells.
Cleisostoma linearilobatum Most Abundant in both ‘Holy Hills’ and Traditional Tea Gardens in Xishuangbanna[Feb 29, 2016]
Cleisostoma linearilobatum is a small epiphytic orchid widely distributed in Southeast Asia including Xishaungbanna in Southwest China. During the systematic field surveys of orchid species diversity in Xishuangbanna, Prof. GAO Jiangyun and his team of Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) found that Cleisostoma linearilobatum was the most abundant species in both ‘holy hills’ and traditional tea gardens at elevations between...
Evaluation of Individual Allocation Scheme and Its Impacts in a Dynamic Global Vegetation Model[Feb 26, 2016]
The individual carbon allocation scheme for trees, the core of Dynamic global vegetation models (DGVMs), was evaluated using the Institute of Atmospheric Physics-Dynamic Global Vegetation Model, version 1.0 (IAP-DGVM1.0) as a test-bed. It was found that IAP-DGVM1.0 underestimated individual leaf biomass for all tree plant functional types, and overestimated individual stem biomass for all of them except boreal needleleaf evergreen tree.
