  • Novel Antimicrobial Peptides to Control Intracellular Salmon...

    The “antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) & antibiotic to substitutes (ATA)” group led by Prof. Wang Jianhua from Feed Research Institute of CAAS has designed novel antimicrobial peptides against intracellular Salmonella infection by conjugating AMPs with the cell-penetrating peptide via a cleavable linker.

  • SHVRI Finds that the Acidity/alkalinity Properties of the Re...

    Recently, the research team of swine viral reproductive failure syndrome from Shanghai Veterinary Research Institute of Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS) has made important progress in the research of neurovirulence of Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV).

  • Construction and Application of Integrated Management Strate...

    The cereal cyst nematodes (Heterodera avenae, H. filipjevi and H. elachista) cause severe yield loss to cereal crops and threaten food security in China.

  • Key Molecular Basis of TMUV Transmissibility among Ducks wer...

    Researchers at Department of Avian Infectious Diseases, Shanghai Veterinary Research Institute of Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences have published a research paper on Journal of Virology about the molecular basis on the pathogenicity of TMUV in Ducks.

  • The Fungal Pathogen Magnaporthe oryzae Suppresses Innate Imm...

    Potassium (K+) is required by plants for growth and development, and also contributes to immunity against pathogens. However, it has not been established whether pathogens modulate host K+ signaling pathways to enhance virulence and subvert host immunity.

  • The Monocot-Specific Receptor-like Kinase SDS2 Controls Cell...

    Programmed cell death plays critical roles in plant immunity but must be regulated to prevent excessive damage. The E3 ubiquitin ligase SPL11 negatively regulates PCD and immunity in plants. However, the molecular mechanism of SPL11-mediated PCD and immunity is mainly unknown.

  • Chinese Scientists Spot Selfish Genetic Element in Plants

    After found in mice and nematodes, selfish genetic element is once again discovered in rice by Chinese scientists. This is the first time that selfish genetic element is found in plants, challenging the renowned Mendel’s Law of segregation.

  • Progress on Fruit Size Molecular Mechanisms in Sweet Cherry

    Recently, a paper titled PaCYP78A9, a Cytochrome P450, Regulates Fruit Size in Sweet Cherry (Prunus avium L.), reported by sweet cherry germplasm improvement research team from Zhengzhou Fruit Research Institute of Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS), was published on the Frontiers in Plant Sciences.

  • The Hangzhou Index of Chinese Tea Industry Launched at the S...

    On May 18, 2018, the Tea Research Institute of Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS) launched the first Hangzhou Index of Chinese Tea Industry on the side event of the opening ceremony of the Second China International Tea Expo, which was held in Hangzhou from May 18 to May 22, 2018.

  • CAAS Revealed the Role of RXFP2 in the Development of a Uniq...

    Recently, the mutton sheep and goat genetics and breeding team have reported their new progress on adaptive evolutions of domestic sheep. The present study revealed that horn-related gene RXFP2 showed signs of rapid evolution in the semi-feral sheep breeds specifically.
