Group at CAS Wuhan Botanical Garden unravel molecular genetics of anthocyanin biosynthesis in blood-fleshed peach

The group of Yuepeng HAN have found that a special R2R3-type transcription factor regulates if peaches of thePrunus persica (L.) Batsch variety, native to China, develop into yellow or blood-fleshed fruits. In white-fleshed fruits, the expression of this transcription factor PpMYB10.1 cannot be activated due to the lack of expression of a BL gene; in […]

CAS Shenyang Institute of Automation achieves ultra-fine print of solar cell gate electrodes

Using improved ink-print technology for a nano silver paste printing process at high-speed, high-precision control and on large arrays, crystalline silicon solar cells could be manufactured with an improved solar cell conversion efficiency of 0.6%, reduced silver material consumption by 40 percent, resulting in reduced operating costs 0.60 ~ 0.80 yuan / piece. CAS news […]

Nano-bio composite structures developed at Shanghai Jiatong Univrsity, putative signaling molecules and drug carriers

In a publication in Angew. Chemie Int. Edition, Shiping SONG and Chunhai FAN summarize recent developments of their conceptual work on rolling-circle DNA amplification and DNA origami technology. The projects describe cooperative work with CAS Shanghai Institute of Biophysics Yuan YAN et al., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. (2015, 127, 2461-2465) DOI: 10.1002/anie.201408247

CAS Institute of Micrdobiology researchers elucidate D-gulosamine biosynthetic in streptothricin biosynthesis

Streptothricins are atypical aminoglycoside antibiotics possessing antibacterial and antifungal activities. Zhongshengmycin, a product of streptothricins, is widely used as agriculture antibiotic for crop protection. A defect of this product is that it contains various streptothricin components which make product quality control very difficult. The group of CHEN Yihua has elucidated the biosynthetic pathway of the […]
