FAFU Research Team Makes Serial Achievements in Uncovering Insect Transmission Mechanism of Rice Plant Viruses

福建农林大学(英文版)   发布时间: 2023-03-28   信息员:

Recently, the FAFU research team led by Professor Wei Taiyun has published the latest results of the insect transmission mechanism of rice plant viruses in three major international journals, i.e., Nature Communications (IF= 17.694), Autophagy (IF= 13.391) and SCIENCE CHINA Life Sciences (IF= 10.3). The team is dedicated to the research on mechanism of crop diseases caused by insect-transmitted viruses and relevant ecological prevention and control.

On March 9th, the team published an online paper titled “Arboviruses and symbiotic viruses cooperatively hijack insect sperm-specific proteins for paternal transmission” on Nature Communications, and another paper titled “Autophagy mediates a direct synergistic interaction during co-transmission of two distinct arboviruses by insect vectors” on SCIENCE CHINA Life Sciences, a journal co-founded by Chinese Academy of Sciences and National Natural Science Foundation of China. On November 9th, 2022, the team published on Autophagy an online paper titled “VDAC1 balances mitophagy and apoptosis in leafhopper upon arbovirus infection”, which has been selected by the editors as a featured cover article.
