Scientists Find How Rice Copes with Chilling
Rice is originally domesticated in tropical and subtropical areas and is sensitive to cold stress. Extreme temperature thus represents a key factor limiting global rice plant distribution. Artificial selection and domestication expand typical japonica cultivars into northern areas with lower yearly temperatures, which generally exhibit stronger chilling tolerance than indica cultivars. How...
Scientists from IBCAS Indicate Rapid Loss of lakes on the Mongolian Plateau
Lakes are widely distributed on the Mongolian Plateau and, as critical water sources, have sustained Mongolian pastures for hundreds of years. However, a recent study led by Dr. Jingyun Fang’s group suggests that these lakes have been experiencing remarkable shrinkage over the past three decades due to intensive human activities and climate changes. In this study, using images of the ...
Structural Basis for the Dual Functions of Arabidopsis Hexokinase 1
Sugars not only provide energy for plant growth and development, but also act as signaling molecules to regulate expression of some photosynthesis-related genes. Among the enzymes responsible for sugar metabolism and signaling, Arabidopsis thaliana hexokinase 1 (AtHXK1) plays an essential role in both glycolysis and sugar sensing. Thus, understanding the structural and functional features ...
