Important Research

The gut microbiome affects the response to medical implants
The gut microbiome and antibiotic use can affect the outcomes of surgery where biomaterials are implanted, according to a new study published by Taiwanese researchers. Every year, millions of biomaterials are implanted into patients, including cosmetic and reconstructive implants, hip and knee replacements, artificial blood vessel grafts, polymer meshes......
Liver maintains systemic memory cytotoxic T cell immunity indefinitely
The goal of vaccination is to achieve long-lasting protection through the development of antigen-specific memory cells. Current COVID-19 vaccines induce good early immune responses, but are sub-optimal in the maintenance phase, resulting in short- but not long-term protection. Dr. Kung, John, research fellow in the Institute of Molecular Biology, Academia Sinica, identified hepatic stellate cell as the cell capable of sustaining memory CD8+ T cells survival and functionality indefinitely. He concluded that the liver, the largest organ of our body, contributes significantly to memory CD8+ T cell longevity; these findings have significant implications for vaccine development......
Origin and evolution of biological nitrogen fixation
Previous studies hypothesized that nitrogen fixation first evolved in archaea and was later transferred to bacteria. However, analyzing >30,000 prokaryotic genomes and constructing multiple large phylogenies of nitrogen-fixing proteins,we rejected this hypothesis and proposed the bacteria-first hypothesis, postulating that nitrogen fixation first evolved in bacteria and was later transferred to archaea.
