Researchers Reveal the Role of Histone H3K9 Methylation in Drought-Stress Responses in Ara...
The repressive mark H3K9me2 is involved in silencing transposable elements and repetitive DNA in plants. Interestingly, the repressive H3K9me2 mark is also detected at the loci of protein-coding genes, and the activation of sets of genes by drought stress is correlated with reduced H3K9me2 levels. However, the role of H3K9 methylation in the regulation of drought-stress responses remains e...
Climatic warming threatens China's vegetation productivity
Climatic warming could hamper the productivity of natural vegetation in China, largely due to decreased soil moisture, according to a research article published in the journal Agricultural and Forest Meteorology. The conclusion is based on a study of the impact of higher temperatures on plant-community function and stability in desert grassland areas of north China's Inner Mongolia Aut...
Biogeography of Tetrastigma Fleshes out Asia-Australian Floristic Exchange History
How did biotic exchange between Asia and Australia occur across the geologically and topographically complex Malesian region in space and time? A new case study published in Cladistics has shed light on this question. Prof. CHEN Zhiduan’s group from the Institute of Botany of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and international collaborators carried out a comprehensive biogeographic anal...
