Important Research

An ATP-independent Role of Prp16 in Promoting Aberrant Splicing

Most eukaryotic genes contain sequences that interrupt the genes’ continuity yet are not translated into proteins. These sequences are removed at the RNA level in a process termed RNA splicing, which occurs on a large ribonucleoprotein complex known as the spliceosome.
Estimating genome-wide DNA methylation heterogeneity with methylation patterns

In a heterogeneous population of cells, individual cells can behave differently and respond variably to the environment. This cellular diversity can be assessed by measuring DNA methylation patterns. The loci with variable methylation patterns are informative of cellular heterogeneity and may serve as biomarkers of diseases and developmental progression. Cell-to-cell methylation heterogeneity can be evaluated through single-cell methylomes or computational techniques for pooled cells.
mRNA-based vaccines and therapeutics: an in-depth survey of current and upcoming clinical applications

mRNA-based vaccines and therapeutics have tremendous potential as clinical treatments. In a recently published review article, Dr. Han-Chung Wu’s group at the Institute of Cellular and Organismic Biology (ICOB) and Biomedical Translation Research Center (BioTReC) comprehensively discuss the latest research results, current clinical trials, and future development potential of mRNA drugs.
Deciphering purinosome assembly mechanism to open a new direction for cancer metabolism research
Metabolic reprogramming is a hallmark of cancer. Cancer cells alter various cellular metabolism pathways to meet the high demand on bioenergetics and biosynthesis and to adapt the harsh tumor microenvironment. However, it remains unclear whether other strategies of metabolic alterations can be exploited by cancer cells for maintaining their proliferation and survival.
Human Heart Tissue Regeneration in Non-human Primates: A Breakthrough

Heart failure remains a significant global cause of mortality, characterized by the adult human heart's inability to repair itself or compensate for the loss of cardiac muscle cells. Cell therapy, specifically employing stem cells, has emerged as a promising avenue for restoring lost cardiac muscle cells and reviving heart function.
