Important Research

Faster than Photosynthesis! Academia Sinica Creates an Efficient Carbon Fixation System to Support Carbon-Negative Technologies
The conversion, or fixation, of carbon dioxide (CO2) into biomass and related carbohydrates is an essential process, necessary for all of life. Until a recent publication by Academia Sinica President James C. Liao and his research team, the fixation of CO2 by photosynthesis was the most effective means for CO2 conversion on large scale, accounting for most of the CO2 fixed on Earth......
Glutamate metabolism and signaling in plants
Glutamate (Glu) is a multifunctional amino acid. In addition to metabolism, Glu functions as a signaling molecule to regulate plant growth, development, and defense responses. Dr. Ming-Hsiun Hsieh’s group published a review article to discuss Glu metabolism and signaling in plants. They also propose that primary metabolites may act as danger signals to induce defense responses in plants......
ERF109, a universal stress-fighting tool
ETHYLENE-RESPONSIVE TRANSCRIPTION FACTOR109 (ERF109) is a member of the ERF/AP2 transcription factor family which is involved in a multitude of abiotic and biotic stresses as well as in essential processes such as hormone signaling and root stem cell maintenance. Researchers at IPMB and NCHU could now demonstrate that ERF109 plays also a critical role in the coordination of the iron (Fe) deficiency response......
Splicing variants constitutes new regulators in de-etiolation
Light is a crucial environmental signal ensuring a successful growth and development of a young plant seedling. Light triggers multiple layers of gene expression regulation in plants to produce RNAs and proteins for autotrophic growth. The advances of next-generation sequencing have enabled the detection of multiple transcript variants from one single gene, but not the actual configurations of the transcript variants, such as the transcription start sites, splicing site selections and polyadenylation sites etc......
Mating-driven variability in olfactory local interneuron wiring
Variations in neuronal connectivity occur widely in nervous systems from invertebrates to mammals. Yet, it is unclear how neuronal variability originates, to what extent and at what timescales it exists, and what functional consequences it might carry. Using genetic labeling and electron microscopy connectomics, we show that an identified inhibitory olfactory local interneuron, TC-LN, exhibits extraordinary variability in its glomerular innervation patterns......
A quick method to quantify iron in plants
Iron (Fe) is an indispensable micronutrient for plant growth and development. Quantification of Fe serves as an important parameter for analyzing the fitness of plants from different accessions, or mutants and transgenic lines with altered expression of specific genes. To quantify metals in plant samples, methods based on inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) or inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) have been widely employed. Although these methods are highly accurate, these methodologies rely on sophisticated equipment which is not always available. In the latest issue of Bio-Protocols, Wolfgang Schmidt’s team outline a simple and cost-efficient protocol to quantify Fe concentrations in roots and shoots of Arabidopsis seedlings, by using a spectroscopy-based assay to quantify Fe2+-[BPDS]3 complexes against a set of standards. This protocol provides a fast and reproducible method to determine Fe levels in plant samples with high precision and low costs.
