Researchers Reveal Catabolic Regulation of Plant Hormone Strigolactones
Researchers led by Prof. HU Yuxin from the Institute of Botany of the Chinese Academy of Sciences recently reported that the Arabidopsis carboxylesterase 15 (AtCXE15) and its orthologues in seed plants function as efficient hydrolases of plant hormone strigolactones (SLs). This discovery reveals the catalytic mechanism underlying homeostatic regulation of SLs in plants. Relevant result...
Planting New Forests with High Functional Diversity Helps Improve Productivity
As forests age, differences in species functional traits become more important and reliable in predicting forest productivity, according to an international study led by Prof. MA Keping at the Institute of Botany of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (IBCAS). As part of the study, MA and his team evaluated data from a 10-year-old planted mixed forest to determine how functional traits of ...
Ubiquitylation delays protein degradation? Chinese scientists find new mechanism underlyin...
Cultivated rice is an important crop that feeds more than half of the world’s population. Grain size in rice is a key agronomic trait determining grain yield. It is therefore of significant scientific interest and high-yield breeding implications to reveal new mechanisms underlying grain size control in rice. In a study published in Plant Cell, Dr. SONG Xianjun's group from the Instit...
