Sandia National Laboratories

Scientists at Sandia National Laboratories are working to make large back-up batteries for homes or neighborhoods less expensive, hold more energy and be less prone to bursting into flame. One way to tackle all three challenges is by changing up the battery chemistry with the addition of sulfur, according to Sandia battery expert Melissa Meyerson.

Anlotinibplus STUPP: a new hope for glioblastoma patients
Chinese Academy of Sciences

A recent study found that adding anlotinib to the standard STUPP regimen for glioblastoma patients could improve outcomes. The trial, involving 33 newly diagnosed patients, reported a median progression-free survival (PFS) of 10.9 months and a median overall survival (OS) of 17.4 months. This promising result suggests a potential new approach for treating this aggressive brain cancer. Further studies are underway to confirm the findings and explore additional therapeutic options.

Tomato triumph: unraveling the genetic loss of saline-alkaline tolerance
Chinese Academy of Sciences

A pivotal study has identified a natural genetic variation in the promoter of the tomato gene SlSCaBP8 that has resulted in reduced saline-alkaline tolerance in modern tomato cultivars. This discovery is key to understanding the genetic basis of stress response and could guide future breeding programs to enhance crop resilience against soil salinization.

Newswise: Unlocking the secrets of plant steroid hormones: the yin and yang of diosgenin and brassinosteroids

Unlocking the secrets of plant steroid hormones: the yin and yang of diosgenin and brassinosteroids
Chinese Academy of Sciences

A recent study revealed the complex interplay between diosgenin (DG) and brassinosteroids (BRs) in Dioscorea zingiberensis. By integrating genome-wide methylation, transcriptome, and metabolite data, researchers constructed a regulatory network showing how DG and BRs balance each other. These findings offer new insights into plant secondary metabolism and potential for enhancing DG production for steroid hormone drugs.
