Scientists Reveal A "Middle Way" of Plant Defense Response[Sep 17, 2019]

In a recent study, HOU Xingliang's research group from South China Botanical Garden reported the latest research progress on the precise regulation of growth-defense balance in plants. DELLA protein is a key negative regulator of gibberellin (GA) signaling pathway, which functions in many aspects of plant growth and development, and also participates in the regulation of plant stress response.

Researchers Develop DNA-based Markers to Authenticate "Gusuibu"[Sep 17, 2019]

In a recent study, researchers from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) developed one specific DNA barcode and three sequence characterized amplified region (SCAR) markers to authenticate "Gusuibu" origin species. They also designed universal and species specific primer pairs.


CYP72A, a New Player Controlling Plant Gibberellins Metabolism[Sep 16, 2019]

Recently, researchers in Dr. WANG Guodong's group from the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology identified a new player controlling plant GAs metabolism. They discovered that members of the CYP72A subfamily, rather than CYP714 subfamily, encode bona fide gibberellin 13-oxidase.
