KIZ Researchers Made Progresses in Generating a Breast Cancer Tree Shrew Model with High Efficiency and Short Latency

  Breast cancer is a common malignant tumor. The advance of breast cancer treatments is hindered in part by challenges in translating to humans the successes achieved indistantly related rodent species. To bridge that evolutionary gap, scientists have begun to turn to an alternative model organism, the tree shrew (Tupaiabelangerichinensis). Tree shrews have increasingly become an attractive ... more
The Animal Toxins We Study

  In the wild, many animal species, no matter how small or strong they are, can use their specialized ways to defend themselves and to prey, e.g., the deadly predator, mantis, really masters the skill of hiding its merciless nature under the disguise of those super adorable, mysteries or even spiritual gestures of mimicry; the strong, mighty lions, on the other hand, never understand how to ... more
Near Full-length Novel HIV-1 Chimera Indentified in Northern Myanmar after 12 Years since 2003

  Due to the special geographical location of the Myanmar-China border, and relatively high numbers of high-risk groups, including intravenous drug users (IDUs), commercial sex workers (CSWs), long-distance truck drivers (LDTDs), etc., this region has become one of the hardest-hit areas of HIV worldwide. Moreover, the constant and regular activities of these high-risk groups between China an... more
Odor Detection Systems

  In modern human society, odor detection tasks are becoming more and more prominent, e.g. to prevent terrorism or for drug searches, and especially the use of rodents for these tasks has some unique advantages. Researchers from the Kunming Institute of Zoology developed a novel apparatus and operant conditioning paradigm (Relative GO NO-GO) for mouse-based odor detection systems. Using this... more
KIZ Researchers Investigate Why HIV-1 Activities are Restricted in Certain Species of Monkeys

  When looking for a cure for HIV, scientists are turning to our closest genetic relative: monkeys. Monkeys can be infected with HIV, but there is one key difference when compared with their human counterparts: HIV doesn’t often replicate in monkeys. There are several restriction factors that prevent replication of HIV-1 in primates, namely TRIMCyp, a fusion protein. This protein developed ... more
