Electronic Conductive MOF Nanofilms: New Generation of High Performance Chemiresistor Gas Sensor[Dec 15, 2017]

In a study published in Angew. Chem. In. Ed., the research group led by Prof. XU Gang from Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter of Chinese Academy of Sciences reported the controllable thin film fabrication of an EC-MOF, Cu3(HHTP)2, (HHTP=2,3,6,7,10,11-hexahydroxytriphenylene), by a spray layer-by-layer liquid-phase epitaxial method. The Cu3(HHTP)2 nanofilms can be precisely prepared with controllable thickness, smooth surface, good crystallinity and high orientation.

Researchers Gain Insight into Trace Water in Process of Peptide Self-assembly[Dec 15, 2017]

Researchers led by Prof. YAN Xuehai from the Institute of Process Engineering put forward a strategy to gain insight into the key role of trace water in peptide self-assembly by using ionic liquids (ILs) as a biomimetic medium.

The Mekong–Salween Divide is an Important Floristic Boundary in Sino-Himalaya: Evidence from the Phylogeography of Marmoritis Complanatum[Dec 15, 2017]

Recently, scientists from Kunming Institute of Botany reconstructed the phylogeography of Marmoritis complanatum combined with climatic data analysis and species distribumodelling (SDM) endemic to the subnival belt of the HHM region.

Natural Insect Virus Baculovirus has Evolved a Distinct Strategy to Suppress the Host Immune System[Dec 15, 2017]

In a present study by cooperation with scientists from Institute of Zoology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, scientists in Wuhan Institute of Virology showed that a DNA virus baculovirus infection of the cotton bollworm, Helicoverpa armigera, reduced the levels of most cascade members in the host hemolymph and PO activity.

Polη O-GlcNAcylation Governs Genome Integrity During Translesion DNA Synthesis[Dec 14, 2017]

Prof. GUO Caixia from Beijing Institute of Genomics of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), and Prof. TANG Tieshan from Institute of Zoology of CAS revealed that translesion DNA synthesis (TLS) polymerase η is modified with O-linked β-N-acetylglucosamine (O-GlcNAc) at 457 threonine, termed O-GlcNAcylation.

TBC1D7 Regulates Systemic Growth in Droaophila[Dec 14, 2017]

Scientists from the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology (IGDB) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, in cooperation with scientists from National institute of Biological Science (NIBS), identified a homology of TBC1D7 in Drosophila, named dTBC1D7 and established a genetic model.
