A team of researchers led by H. Eric Xu and XIE Xin from the Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and JIANG Yi from the Lingang Laboratory, provided structural insights into the binding of GPR119 to the endogenous ligand lysophosphatidylcholines (LPC) and the drug candidate APD668.
An international research team led by Dr. ZHANG Huaqiao from the Nanjing Institute of Geology and Palaeontology has used hundreds of new fossil specimens to clarify the anatomy and evolutionary affinity of Saccorhytus, originally thought to be a deuterostome.
An international team of researchers from China and UK, has generated a high-quality genome of sage, and revealed the evolutionary features of diterpenoids biosynthesis in Salvia.
Bisbenzylisoquinoline alkaloids (bis-BIAs) and chlorophyll (Chl) are predominantly accumulated in lotus plumule which is a green tissue in the middle of seeds. A research team from the Wuhan Botanical Garden used RNA sequencing technology to reveal the development and molecular mechanisms of bis-BIAs and Chl biosynthesis in lotus plumule.
Researchers led by Prof. WANG Wei from the Institute of Botany recently studied caves in subtropical East Asia to unravel their colonization history.
In a recent study, researchers from Hohai University and the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden proposed a framework associated with ecosystem services assessment for a more balanced consideration of hydropower development and to take measures to mitigate trade-offs among different objectives.
