Yeast Harnessed for Biosynthesis of Long-Chain α-Alkene[Mar 08, 2018]

Recently, Professor ZHOU Yongjin from Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, in collaboration with Professor Jens Nielsen from Chalmers University of Technology,Sweden, successfully constructed a yeast cell factory for bio-production of long-chain α-alkene.

Transmembrane E3 Ligase RNF183 Mediates ER Stress-induced Apoptosis by Degrading Bcl-xL[Mar 07, 2018]

The researchers at Institute of Biophysics of Chinese Academy of Sciences recently identified a novel membrane-anchored RING finger protein, RNF183. It is specifically induced by prolonged the endoplasmic reticulum stress, ubiquitinates Bcl-xL and causes its degradation and subsequent apoptosis. These findings implied that manipulation of RNF183 activity may help control cell fate in pathological conditions.

Researchers Discover a Novel L-glutamate Exporter from C. glutamicum[Mar 07, 2018]

Recently, a novel L-glutamate exporter of MscCG2 was discovered and characterized by Laboratory of Systems & Synthetic Biotechnology led by Prof. SUN Jibin and Prof. ZHENG Ping at Tianjin Institute of Industrial Biotechnology (TIB) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

North Pacific Climate Patterns Influence El Niño Occurrences[Mar 07, 2018]

Previous studies have investigated the relationship between ENSO and PDO but none have examined if the warm (positive) and cool (negative) phases of PDO in the North Pacific influence the frequency of ENSO events in the tropical Pacific. For the first time, scientists from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics quantitatively demonstrated that El Niño is 300 percent more (58 percent less) frequent than La Niña in positive (negative) PDO phases.

How Hydroxyl Groups Boost Catalytic Activity in CO2 Hydrogenation into Methanol[Mar 07, 2018]

Exploring the influence of hydrophilicity on catalytic performance at the atomic level has great potential in developing highly efficient catalysts. Recently, Prof. ZENG Jie's group at University of Science and Technology of China of Chinese Academy of Sciences demonstrated at the atomic level how hydrophilicity of SiC quantum dots boosts their catalytic activity in CO2 hydrogenation via the involvement of hydroxyl species.
