  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
