Chinese Scientists Find "Ant-Man" Genes to Regulate Size of Mice[Mar 07, 2019]

A Chinese research team used two critical genes to regulate the size of mice organs and bodies as similarly seen in the sci-fi movie "Ant-man." They removed two genes called "Pum1" and "Pum2" in the mice's embryonic periods and observed the newborn mice bodies were integrally and proportionally smaller than normal ones. Researchers can exclude the effects of other factors like feeding and growth hormones.

Eating Allium Vegetables Lowers Risk of Colorectal Cancer: Study[Mar 06, 2019]

A recent Chinese study found that eating more allium vegetables may slash the risk of getting colorectal cancer. Researchers from the First Hospital of China Medical University in Shenyang, Liaoning Province conducted case-control study from June 2009 to November 2011 in three local hospitals.

Chinese Researchers Find New Target for Tumor Immunotherapy[Mar 05, 2019]

T cells are often called "the workhorses of the immune system" for their critical role in orchestrating the immune response and killing cells infected by pathogens. A team of Chinese researchers has identified a transcription factor that affects the immunologic effects of T cells, providing a new potential target for tumor immunotherapy.

Chinese Team Advances RNA Modification Mapping[Mar 05, 2019]

A Chinese research team has completed a high-resolution prediction of the whole-transcriptome of human m6A RNA modification, which can help scientists regulate gene expression without changing its sequences. The study has provided more reliable reference information for researchers in the field of human RNA modifications.

Protein Inhibitor May Help Cure Liver Cancer: Report[Mar 05, 2019]

Chinese scientists have identified a protein that causes the proliferation of liver cancer cells, a finding which could assist in the development of a new cancer drug. The study is part of the Chinese Human Proteome Project, launched in 2014 to explore new approaches to treat major endemic diseases by building up human proteome biological profiles and mapping all the proteins in major organs.
