A research team led by Prof. CHANG Mingxian from Institute of Hydrobiology (IHB) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences revealed the pivotal role of mutual regulation between NOD1 and RLR-mediated antiviral signaling in the innate immune response. The study was published online in The Journal of Immunology.
A research team led by Dr. CHEN Lingling from Center for Excellence in Molecular Cell Science, Shanghai Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, discovered that distinct processing of lncRNA orthologs resulted in different subcellular localization in human and murine embryonic stem cells (ESCs). This subsequently leads to their functional divergence in the context of pluripotency regulation across species.
Northern China is a major dairy-producing region in the country. However, milk production is expected to drastically decline by 2050, with losses potentially up to 50% by 2070, because of heat stress in July, says a new study conducted by a team of scientists from the Kunming Institute of Botany.
Supervised by Prof. CHENG Xiaoli, LI Qianxi, a postdoctor of Wuhan Botanical Garden, investigated the spatial variations in EA in woodland, shrubland and adjacent open areas in the Danjiangkou Reservoir of central China.
In a recent study, researchers from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) conducted a large‐scale common garden study to examine the links between the leaf economic spectrum (LES), structural defenses (spines, leaf fiber and lignin content), quantitative chemical defense (condensed tannins) and sapling growth rate of spiny species.
Researchers from the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology have found a new species of sandgrouse in six to nine million-year-old rocks in Gansu Province in western China. The newly discovered species points to dry, arid habitats near the edge of the Tibetan Plateau as it rose to its current extreme altitude.
