    Power of Phytohormones in Microalgal Biotechnology


      Phytohormones are a class of signaling molecules that are produced intrinsically in plants. In higher plants, phytohormones are usually synthesized in one location and then transported to another location, exerting their physiological effects...

    Bio-based Nanofibrils: Extending Au 2D Nanomaterials to Macroscopic Scale

    The fascinating roles of two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterials in natural super-strong bio-composites (i.e. aragonite platelets in nacre and apatite platelets in bone) have aroused great interest in scientific communities to synthesize their artificial counterparts with controllable geometric and physical properties. Though much endeavor has been made to achieve a shape/size controlling synthesis, the lateral dimension of 2D Au nanocrystals had been long limited within the microscopic scale. In 2015, Prof. Chaoxu Li at the Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology (QIBEBT), Chinese Academy of Sciences, reported that amyloid fibrils, a unique type of protein assembling nanostructures, may help extend the lateral length of 2D Au nanocrystals close to half a millimeter.

    Translationally-controlled Tumor Protein Interacts with Eukaryotic Elongation Factor 1B

    Translationally-controlled tumor protein is conserved in eukaryotes and is an abundant protein involved in cellular growth, differentiation, and apoptosis, as well as in the progress of carcinogenesis and inflammation. Translationally-controlled tumor protein is conserved in eukaryotes and is an abundant protein involved in cellular growth, differentiation, and apoptosis, as well as in the progress of carcinogenesis and inflammation. The study of interaction between TCTP and eukaryotic elongation factor 1B revealed that the interaction with eEF1B is one of primary biological functions of TCTP.
