NLRP3 Inflammasome Maintains Intestinal Homeostasis Through Modulating Gut Microbiota Induced Regulatory T Cells[Dec 07, 2017]

Among many different inflammasomes, NLRP3 stands out for its complicated activation mechanisms, as well as its clinical significance. In a recent study published in Nature Communications, researchers found that the NLRP3-R258W mice are not only healthy with their intestines, but also are with stronger resistance to dextran sulfate sodium (DSS) colitis and colorectal cancer.

Wearable Electronic Fabric Sheds Light On Human Motion Monitor[Dec 07, 2017]

In a recent paper published in Advanced Electronic Materials, researchers from the Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, reported the textile-based stretchable sensor by electronic dyeing method for human motion monitoring and analysis. By integrating the traditional dyeing technology and electronic engineering, a stretchable conductive fabric that could in real time response to the different stress of human body during the motion with an electronic signal output.

Climate-growth Responses of Yunnan Fir Increase with Elevation in Central Hengduan Mountains[Dec 07, 2017]

Researchers from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences developed tree-ring width chronologies of Yunnan fir ((Abies georgei) along elevation gradients at two sites (located in the Baima Snow Mountain (BSM) and Shika Snow Mountain (SSM) ) in the central Hengduan Mountains (HM).

Researchers Discover the Mechanism Underlying the C12,8-lactone Moiety Formation[Dec 07, 2017]

A project aiming to understand the mechanism underlying the formation of the C12,8-lactone moiety was launched by the Natural Product Biosynthesis Laboratory of the Wuhan Botanical Garden of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Under the supervision of Prof. ZHANG Yansheng, Ph.D student GOU Junbo has successfully isolated a cytochrome P450 gene CYP71BL6from Inula Hupehensis?plant.

Scientists Use Cell Population Reference Data to Inference of Differentiation Time for Single Cell Transcriptomes[Dec 06, 2017]

A team of scientists proposed an approach to unbiasedly assess the contribution of cell cycle to a development trajectory by including cell population RNA-seq (cpRNA-seq) data in parallel to the single cell RNA-seq (scRNA-seq) data as a reference, and then ordered the single cell trajectories not based on their inter-cell expression distance, but on the external reference time (actual time) derived from the cpRNA-seq data.
