Protection from Parkinson's

In Nature China this month - Molecular neuroscience: Choosing your mate; Nanomaterials: Drip, drop, quantum dot; Public health: Better safe than sorry; Composites: Graphene foam.

Nature China highlights the best research coming out of Mainland China and Hong Kong, providing scientists from around the world with a convenient portal into publications drawn from across all scientific disciplines. Each month, our editors select the best published research and provide a summary of the results. See the links at the bottom of this article to view the following research highlights:


Cell biology: Protection from Parkinson's
Cdk5 phosphorylation of endophilin B1 is necessary for the activation of autophagy and subsequent neuronal loss in Parkinson's disease

Plant biology: A protein router
The protein LTD plays the role of a router in photosynthesis

Molecular neuroscience: Choosing your mate
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that affects sexual preference in mice


Nanomaterials: Drip, drop, quantum dot
Particles with complex internal structures could serve as 'barcodes' for biomedical applications


Public health: Better safe than sorry
A 15-year study shows that the mortality rate of HIV patients in China is still high


Composites: Graphene foam
Researchers in Shenyang have made graphene-polymer composites that are not only light and flexible, but also conduct electricity

Polymers: Tiny crawlers
A small device made from shape-changing polymers walks in response to a change in humidity
