Researchers reveal the new regulatory pathway of plant immunity
During host–pathogen coevolution, plants have evolved intracellular-localized NOD-like receptors (NLRs) that monitor pathogen effectors and trigger effector-triggered immunity (ETI). Overexpression of NLRs (i.e. SUPPRESSOR OF npr1-1, CONSTITUTIVE 1, SNC1) or its interacting proteins (i.e. an SNC1-interacting protein TOPLESS-RELATED 1, TPR1) results in autoimmunity, which reduces plant...
Plants remember winter through the molecular module
Some plants require winter season for flowering so called vernalization which is a key agriculture trait for crop breeding. Mechanism with molecular module for remembering winter is a key base for the molecular design for crop breeding. Recently, a review article entitled “Remembering winter through vernalization” from Kang Chong’s group from Institute of Botany, CAS has been publis...
Diverse Forests Can Absorb More Carbon Than Single Species Forests, Study Finds
A recent study carried out in Eastern China has found that forests full of diverse species of trees are capable of absorbing twice as much carbon as forests full of a single species of tree. It is hoped that this discovery could help combat climate change by enabling conservation groups to cultivate forests capable of absorbing more CO2. Cultivating A Forest For Research In 200...
