    Recently, the functional livestock products team of the Beijing Institute of Animal Science (IAS) has systematically reviewed the latest developments in the research of reactive sulfur and selenium fluorescent species probes based on nucleophilic aromatic substitution reactions.

  • Suggestions to Improve Folate Retention in Wheat-based Foods

    Recently, crop metabolism regulation and nutrition biofortification team from Biotechnology Research Institute has done a systematic analysis of folate content and folate retention in wheat grains and wheat-based foods during storage, processing and cooking, which will help to guide industrial/household preparation of wheat-based foods for folate nutrition. The related results published on Food chemistry.

  • CAAS Deciphered the Intrinsic and Extrinsic Programming of P...

    Polyketides are a group of microbial secondary metabolites biosynthesized by gigantic multienzymes termed polyketide synthases (PKSs). A large number of these complex molecules, such as erythromycins and avermectins serve as life-saving pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals, while others, such as aflatoxins and fumonisins act as mycotoxins that cause severe damages to human health and agriculture.

  • A Masterpiece in the Field of Scientific Research and Produc...

    Recently, Pears in China was officially published by China Agriculture Press. This book is a systematic scientific monograph which integrates the achievements of pear research in China. It covers 1172 pear varieties with a total of 2.65 million words and more than 3500 full-color photos.

  • ABCG Transporters SGE1 and MtABCG13 Control Stigma Exsertion...

    Stigma exsertion is an important agricultural trait that facilitates the use of heterosis in crop breeding. Although several quantitative trait loci associated with stigma exsertion have been fine mapped or cloned, the underlying genetic basis, particular in legumes, remains unclear.

  • The Antagonistic MYB Paralogs RH1 and RH2 Govern Anthocyanin...

    Patterned leaf coloration in plants generates remarkable diversity in nature, but the underlying mechanisms remain largely unclear. Here, using Medicago truncatula leaf marking as a model, we show that the classic M. truncatula leaf anthocyanin spot trait depends on two R2R3 MYB paralogous regulators, RED HEART1 (RH1) and RH2.

  • SMALL LEAF AND BUSHY1 Controls Organ Size and Lateral Branch...

    Organ size is a major agronomic trait that determines grain yield and biomass production in crops. However, the molecular mechanisms controlling organ size, especially in legumes, are poorly understood.

  • Regulation of Plant Vitamin Metabolism Provides Strategies o...

    Recently, the innovation team of Crop Metabolic Regulation and Biofortification led by Zhang Chunyi from Biotechnology Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences was invited to write a review article for Molecular Plant.

  • Chinese Scientists Uncover Important Mechanisms of Acclimati...

    Recently, researchers from Institute of Crop Sciences, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, together with their collaborators have found that electron flow, ATP synthase activity and NPQ regulation are the major factors determining growth performance of rice under long-term fluctuating light (FL) conditions.

  • WheatGmap: A Comprehensive Platform for Wheat Gene Mapping a...

    Recently, researchers from Institute of Crop Sciences, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, together with their collaborators from Sichuan Agricultural University and Tcuni Inc. developed WheatGmap (https://www.wheatgmap.org), a web-based bulked segregant analysis (BSA) platform that integrates multiple BSA mapping models and numerous public data to accelerate gene cloning and functional research and facilitate resource sharing.
