Lanthanum Affects Primary Root Growth by Modulating Reactive Oxygen Species[Oct 20, 2016]

Prof. XU Jin and his team from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences investigated the role of reactive oxygen species (ROS, important signaling molecules involved in modulating plant growth and development in response to environmental cues) in La-induced root system architecture (RSA) remodeling. The Arabidopsis ecotype Columbia was used in the study.

Asymmetrical Impact of AMO on Central Eurasian Winter Temperature[Oct 20, 2016]

Based on the observations and models’ simulation, Prof. WANG Huijun, Dr. HE Shengping and Dr. HAO Xin from Nansen-Zhu International Research Centre, Institute of Atmospheric Physics explored the central Eurasian climate teleconnection with AMO in winter and then examined the mechanism using observations and simulations.

Karst Area Has Rapid Recuperation of Soil Nitrogen Following Agricultural Abandonment in Southwest China[Oct 20, 2016]

In order to detect how N status change along with succession, a team of researchers in the Institute of Subtropical Agriculture, Chinese Academy of Sciences (ISA) investigated soil N stock and N cycling indicators (e.g.soil dissolved inorganic N concentration, foliar N concentration, 15N of foliar and soil etc.) in cropland, grassland, shrubland, secondary forest and primary forest in a large portion of the karst region in southwest China with the grassland, shrubland and secondary forest developed spontaneously from abandoned cropland.

Researchers Discover Highly Potent Type II cKIT Kinase T670I Mutant Inhibitor for GIST[Oct 20, 2016]

Recently, a study team led by Prof. LIU Qingsong and LIU Jing at High Magnetic Field Laboratory, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CHMFL) reported their new progress on developing type II cKIT kinase inhibitors for Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs), which overcomes the drug resistance mutant T670I.
