Researchers led by Prof. LIN Qiang from the South China Sea Institute of Oceanology revealed how ecological specialization arises in widely distributed marine species with integrated analysis of morphological, genetic and ecological data.
Researchers from the Institute of Subtropical Agriculture explored the consequences of water regime changes on phenological mismatches and detected the relative role of the mismatch as a driver of annual variations in abundance and distribution of the Lesser White-fronted Goose in East Dongting Lake.
In a recent study, researchers from the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) investigated the differentiation in functional strategy in term of stem and leaf traits among coexisting lianas, scandent shrubs and trees in a subalpine cold temperate forest in Southwest China.
Dr. XIAO Yichuan's group from Shanghai Institute of Nutrition and Health of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and their collaborators, discovered that high concentration of TGFβ inhibits the expression of BFAR in CD4+ T cells so as to impair TH9 differentiation as well as Th9-mediated tumor immunotherapy, and elucidated the underlying molecular mechanism.
Recently, Prof. XIE Can from the High Magnetic Field Laboratory of the Hefei Institutes of Physical Science (HFIPS), in a collaboration with Prof. YAN Xiyun's lab from the Institute of Biophysics, reported the structural basis of mAb AA98's inhibition on CD146-mediated endothelial cells (EC) activation and designed higher affinity monoclonal antibody HA98 for cancer treatment.
A previously unreported prenyltransferase (EsPT2) from Epimedium sagittatum and a previously uncharacterized methyltransferase (GmOMT2) from G. max has been identified and functionally characterized.
