Dr. GU Yong's lab at the Institute of Neuroscience, Center for Excellence in Brain Science and Intelligence Technology investigated the encoding of self-motion signals in posterior cingulate region neurons in the macaque brain by using a virtual reality system and extracellular electrophysiological recording techniques, and found that posterior cingulate cortex (PCC) carries robust vestibular signals with complex temporal-spatial tuning properties.
Recently, Prof. YIN Jian and Prof. YIN Huancai from the Suzhou Institute of Biomedical and Engineering used human lung cancer (A549) and human cervical cancer (HeLa) cells as models to study the potential interaction between ABC transporters and nanoparticles (gold nanoparticles and titanium dioxide nanoparticles).
Researchers from the Wuhan Botanical Garden and the Wuhan Institute of Landscape Architecture constructed an integrative database: the Nelumbo Genome Database (NGD), which deploys the latest chromosome-level genome assembly and annotations of "China Antique".
A research group led by Prof. BU Pengcheng at the Institute of Biophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the collaborators, reported that creatine promotes cancer metastasis through activation of Smad2/3. This study called for using caution when considering dietary creatine to improve muscle mass or clinical treatment especially for cancer patients.
In a recent study, researchers from the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) made the first attempt to classify Euphorbia traits according to their architecture. They investigated how architectural traits can explain the structural evolution of Euphorbia and specifically tested whether climate has been a major evolutionary driver of architecture in the clade.
A joint research team led by Prof. PIAO Hailong from the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics found that creatine from both dietary uptake and de novo synthesis can promote the colorectal cancer metastasis to liver via activating SMAD2/3 in TGF-β signaling.
