Prof. CHEN Jianghua's team from the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) performed a large-scale forward genetic screening and whole ‐genome resequencing in Tnt1 retrotransposon-tagged mutant populations of the model legume Medicago truncatula.
Recently, researchers from the Institute of Urban Environment (IUE) and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health have collaborated to identify new mode of male endocrine disruption for environmental arsenic exposure by integrating epidemiological and in vitro toxicological studies.
Recently, a research team led by Prof. DING Baoquan from the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences reported a nanoscale anticoagulant aptamer array based on self-assembled DNA origami technology. This study opens a new avenue to bring a safe and effective anticoagulant for the extracorporeal treatment of renal failures and other diseases.
Researchers from the Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology have developed a method named D2O-probed CANcer Susceptibility Test Ramanometry (D2O-CANST-R) to see, at single-cell/organelle level, how pharmaceuticals induce cancer cell death and how cancer cells adapt.
A team led by Prof. QIU Dongru from Institute of Hydrobiology, based on ambient carbon/nitrogen (C/N) ratios, revealed that cyclic AMP receptor protein (CRP)1, which is widely encoded in bacteria, is required for dissimilatory nitrate reduction to ammonium (DNRA) in Shewanella loihica PV-4 strain, while the CRP2 paralogue is required for transcription of the nitrite reductase gene nirK for denitrification.
In a recent study, researchers from the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) investigated the pollinators of Hoya pottsii (spontaneous and epiphytic, growing on several cultivated and subspontaneous trees in the garden) by capturing flower visitors during the evening and night.
