Scientists Lead to Reveal the Molecular Basis for Heat Desensitization of TRPV1 Ion Channels
 TRPV1 is an important temperature sensing element in mammals, which can be activated by high temperatures above 40°C. However, its role in sustained heat response remains poorly understood since a rapid heat-induced desensitization (Dh) process follows a tightly heat-induced activation (Ah) phase, and its function in mammalian biological activities remain elusive.

Study reveals little evidence for a consistent diversity-disease relationship (DDR) in human microbiome associated diseases

  In a paper published last week in The ISME Journal, a team lead by Prof. MA Zhanshan (Kunming Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences) and Prof. Nicholas Gotelli (University of Vermont) discovered that, in only approximately 1/3 of cases, there is a statistical difference in the microbiome diversity of healthy versus diseased individuals.
  Launched a decade ago, the human micr... more
A new way of studying biological networks provides key insights into the ecology and etiology of human microbiome-associated diseases

  In a paper published in Ecological Monographs, Professors MA Zhanshan (also known as Sam Ma) from Kunming Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences and Aaron M. Ellison (Harvard University) presented a new way of analyzing networks of interacting organisms, which provides a powerful framework and supporting approaches for investigating the ecology and etiology of human microbiome a... more
Scientists discovered low immune activation in SIV-infected northern pig-tailed macaques (Macaca leonina)

  Non-human primates are widely used animal models in studying pathological mechanisms of HIV/SIV infections due to their close evolutionary status with human being. The pig-tailed macaque, which can be divided into three species based on morphological characteristics and geographic distribution, i.e., Southern pig-tailed macaque (Macaca nemestrina), Northern pig-tailed macaque (NPMs, M.leon... more
Scientists named a new species of the genus Liurana (Anura, Ceratobatrachidae) from Medog County, Tibet, China,

  Recently, the research group of Prof. CHE Jing (Kunming Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences) discovered a new species of the genus Liurana Dubois, 1986 from Medog County, Tibet, China, and named it Liurana vallecula sp. nov. (English common name: Valley Papilla-tongued). The “vallecula” means “valley inhabitor”, in reference to the habitat of this species in the lower riv... more
