Scientists Find Precise Control of Terminal Division during Plant Stomatal Development
Stomata are plant-specific epidermal structures that consist of paired guard cells surrounding a pore. The opening and closing of these micro-valves facilitate carbon dioxide uptake for photosynthesis and reduce excessive water loss in plants. Recently, a research group led by Prof. LE Jie at Institute of Botany, Chinese Academy of Sciences, finds a genetic suppressor of flp stomatal d...
Structure of a photosystem II supercomplex from diatom unravels the energy-harvesting, tra...
Diatoms stem from red algae and account up to 40% of the net primary production in the ocean. The high photosynthesis capacity of diatoms are contributed largely by their light-harvesting antenna proteins, which are fucoxanthin (Fx) chlorophyll (Chl) a/c-binding proteins (FCPs) that can efficiently absorb blue-green light available underwater and also have strong nonphotochemical quenching...
Researchers Reveal Regulatory Mechanisms of the Temperature Sensitivity of Soil Organic Ma...
Temperature sensitivity of soil organic matter decomposition, commonly referred to as Q10, is a key parameter in terrestrial carbon cycle. It quantifies the increase in decomposition rate with a 10 oC rise in temperature and could determine the sign and magnitude of terrestrial carbon-climate feedback. The regulatory mechanisms of the temperature sensitivity of soil organic matter deco...
