Scientists Reveal New Potential Therapeutic Targets in Triple Negative Breast Cancer Treatment

  Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is one of the breast cancer subtypes with high degree of malignancy. Compared with other breast cancer subtypes, TNBC has the characteristics of high metastasis rate, high proportion of cell proliferation, and poor prognosis. Currently, there aren’t any specific targeted drugs for treatment of TNBC.
  The research group led by Prof. JIAO Baowei from ... more
How centipedes slay giant prey

  Centipede rapidly subdues Kunming mouse
  This study uncovers the molecular mode of action of centipede venom, which helps the tiny creatures subdue larger-bodied prey. Centipedes are known to subdue large prey by using potent, broad-acting venom. However, venom synthesis requires substantial metabolic investment, and the mechanisms of action of centipede venoms remain unclear.

Scientists indentify 46 Leptonetela novel species in Southwest China

  It is commonly accepted that extreme environments, such as caves, could influence the diversifications of species, e.g., the existence of large numbers of morphologically closed species in caves. Due to the difficulties in separating these species, the biodiversities of cave organisms could be significantly underestimated. DNA barcoding is a widely accepted taxonomic method that uses a sho... more
Was Chicken Domesticated in Northern China?

  Chicken domestication is an interesting topic, and attracts high interests among archaeologists and animal geneticists. Northern China is recognized as an agricultural homeland in East Asia. Several archaeological evidences highlight the possibilities of chicken domestication in ancient Northern China.
  In 2014, a research paper based on ancient mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) entitled “Earl... more
Mitochondrial Genomes Reveal Peopling of Pamirs

  In 1838, “Roof of the World” was first used to describe the Pamirs by the British explorer John Wood. The high altitude makes the Pamirs a big challenge in human dispersal in Central Asia.
  The terrible traffic and environment made the investigation of population genetics difficult in this region. Therefore, the settlement history is still unclear in the Pamirs.
  To address this is... more
