Asian Wild Rice is Not So Wild[Apr 18, 2017]
The researchers from CHU Chengcai's group at Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, together with scientists from University of Copenhagen, Denmark and University of Berkeley, USA found that Asian wild rice is a hybrid swarm with extensive gene flow and feralization from domesticated rice.
To understand how lipopolysaccharide is extracted from the inner membrane (IM), researchers at Institute of Biophysics of Chinese Academy of Sciences solved the crystal structure of LptB2FG, an unusual ABC transporter that is a response for selectively extracting LPS from outer leaflet of the IM.
By consulting a large amount of literature, Prof. YU Diqiu and his team from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences summarized current knowledge concerning the roles of JA in leaf senescence (i.e. a developmental program that is regulated by intrinsic and environmental factors) and tolerance to cold stress.
Researchers Prepare Multiscale Structural and Electronic Control of 2D Molybdenum Sulfide Atomic Crystal[Apr 14, 2017]
Researchers from Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics of Chinese Academy of Sciences successfully achieved the multiscale structural and electronic control of 2D molybdenum sulfide atomic crystal. The optimized catalyst shows a superior catalytic activity and durability for electrocatalytic hydrogen evolution reaction in acidic medium.
Oleaginous Yeast Serves as β-carotene Cell Factory[Apr 20, 2017]
Prof. YANG Sheng and colleagues at Shanghai Institute of Plant Physiology and Ecology of Chinese Academy of Sciences developed a series of genome editing tools for Y. lipolytica. And they generated an efficient biosynthetic pathway using strong promoters and multiple gene copies for each of the 12 steps.
Single-particle Tracking Reveals Mechanism for HIV-1 Productive Entry into Primary Macrophages[Apr 18, 2017]
Prof. CUI Zongqiang from Wuhan Institute of Virology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Prof. ZHANG Xian'en from Institute of Biophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Prof. WU Yuntao from George Mason University have constructed a quantum dot (QD)-encapsulated infectious HIV-1 particle to observe the viral entry pathway to the macrophages at a single-particle level in live cells.
