Kunming Institute of Zoology Reveals the Molecular Mechanism of Autophagy in Drug Addiction

  Recently, a research group led by Dr. YAO Yonggang and Dr. XU Lin at Kunming Institute of Zoology (KIZ) of Chinese Academy of Sciences in collaboration with Dr. DING Yuqiang at the Tongji University, found that Atg5- and Atg7-dependent autophagy in dopaminergic neurons regulates cellular and behavioral responses to morphine (Fig. 1). This research is published online in Autophagy: http://w... more
Why Scorpion Stings Deliver An Insufferable Pain?

  Scorpion Stings Repel Its Predator (Video by LAI Ren's Team)
  Venom is evolved to arm many otherwise defenseless animals with a lethal weapon, such as snakes, centipedes, scorpions and spiders. Although scorpion stings are well known to be extremely painful, it remains a serious problem worldwide because the molecular base is till poorly known.
  Why scorpion stings produce an insuffe... more
A New Genus and Species of Freshwater Stygobiotic Calanoid Discovered in Yunnan, China

  Recently, a new genus and species of freshwater stygobiotic calanoid was discovered in Yunnan, China. This research is published in Zootaxa:https://doi.org/10.11646/zootaxa.4290.1.12 .
  Southeast Asia and South China is an area where the development of karst landforms is relatively concentrated. A large number of caves and groundwater are distributed in Karst areas. The environment lea... more
Kunming Institute of Zoology Reveals a Distinct Regulatory Circuit of SREBP-SCD in Regulating Lipid metabolism in worm

  Recently, cooperating with Guangzhou Medical University, Kunming Institute of Zoology reveals a distinct regulatory circuit of SREBP-SCD in regulating lipid metabolism in worm. The study was published in Journal of Lipid Research http://www.jlr.org/content/early/2017/07/14/jlr.M077198.long.
  Lipids, including fatty acids, triglycerides and cholesterol, are important membrane components,... more
New Findings Suggest that lncRNA-mediated Epigenetic Regulation Contributes to Brain Development and Ageing in Primate

  Dynamic changes in structure and function of brain during development and ageing, especially for primate neocortex which is composed of multiple functional regions with six well-organized horizontal layers segregated by multiple cell types and neuronal connections,have been attributed to a great plasticity of distinct neural cell types which differ in their genetic signatures, transcripto... more
