Non-coding RNA Function during Neural Development, Degeneration, and Regeneration
Our laboratory's focus is to elucidate how neurons establish individual identity in the developing nervous system and why only specific neuron subtypes are vulnerable to neurodegenerative diseases. We tackle these questions by studying non-coding RNAs and their roles in motor neuron generation and degeneration......
A novel mechanism in regulating plant immune receptor
POST: 2023-02-06 13:48:53
This study identified an atypical immune receptor protein that does not induce cell death but participates in the regulation of immune response caused by helper immune receptors. This type of immune receptor protein has evolved from a typical helper receptor protein. They can regulate the homeostasis of the immune system and affect the trade-off between plant growth and immunity. Understanding the regulatory mechanisms of the plant immune system should provide direction for future breeding for disease resistance......
A critical molecule for suppressing gastrointestinal infections through intracellular binding to microbial glycans
Intestinal epithelial cells (IECs) are constantly exposed to many commensal microbes and are the primary sites of contact with invading and non-invading enteric pathogens. Galectins are a major type of glycan-binding protein (GBP) that differ from other GBPs by being located mainly intracellularly. These proteins can decode host-derived complex glycans and are involved in various biological responses......
Structural basis for a conserved neutralization epitope on the receptor-binding domain of SARS-CoV-2
Antibody-mediated immunity plays a crucial role in protection against SARS-CoV-2 infection. We isolated a panel of neutralizing anti-receptor-binding domain (RBD) antibodies elicited upon natural infection and vaccination and showed that they recognize an immunogenic patch on the internal surface of the core RBD, which faces inwards and is hidden in the “down” state......
Cellular mechanisms underlying extraordinary sulfide tolerance in a crustacean holobiont from hydrothermal vents
The convective activity of sulfur in hydrothermal vents jets may have provided the environmental background for the origin of life, and organisms inhabiting this environment must have evolved unique mechanisms to tolerate the high concentration of sulfide present in hydrothermal vent systems, which has led to a progressive shift in the focus of studies on the beginning of life towards such environments......
