Important Research

Unraveling the Mysterious Role of Centriolar Protein CEP120 in Joubert Syndrome, a Congenital Cerebellar Disorder
Dr. Tang K. Tang, a distinguished research fellow in the Institute of Biomedical Sciences of Academia Sinica, leads a research group, working on the roles of centriolar proteins in neuron progenitors during cerebellar development and investigating how the defects in this process impacts the pathogenesis of Joubert syndrome. This work was published in Genes & Development, a prestigious journal renowned in the field of genes and developmental biology.
MiR398-regulated antioxidants contribute to Bamboo mosaic virus accumulation and symptom manifestation
Virus infections cause mosaic or mottling in leaves commonly accompanied by increased reactive oxygen species (ROS) levels as well. However, how ROS contributes to symptoms is less well documented. Bamboo mosaic virus (BaMV) causes chlorotic mosaic symptoms in both Brachypodium distachyon and Nicotiana benthamiana. The BaMV△CPN35 mutant with an N-terminal deletion of its coat protein gene exhibits asymptomatic infection independently of virus titer. The research team of Dr. Na-sheng Lin at Institute of plant and microbial biology found that H2O2 accumulated solely in BaMV-induced chlorotic spots by histochemical staining. Moreover, exogenous H2O2 treatment enhanced yellowish chlorosis in BaMV-infected leaves. Both BaMV and BaMV△CPN35 infection could induce the expression of Cu/Zu superoxide dismutase (CSD) antioxidants at mRNA and protein level.
Stress associated proteins coordinate the activation of comprehensive antiviral immunity in Phalaenopsis orchids
Viruses cause severe damage on crops, and identification of key gene(s) that can comprehensively activate antiviral immunity will provide insights for designing effective antiviral strategies
