Research Interests
The cell-free system nuclear reconstitution is an in vitro system to carry on research on nuclear assembly. It has provided the possibility this is for studying the cell nuclear reconstitution process and the function of cell nucleus various components in nuclear reconstitution. Through the component changes in cell-free system nuclear reassembly we may precisely study the process of cell nuclear reconstitution and function of various components in the nuclear reconstitution. Then may conduct the precise research to the cell division mechanism and the regulation mechanism of cell cycle.
We have carried on the following research:
(1) The cell-free extracts from Nicotiana ovules induced the nuclear reassembly of demembranated Xenopus laevis sperm. The Nicotiana ovule extracts was a new experimental model for cell-free system nuclear reconstitution research.
(2) The extracts from animal Xenopus laevis egg induced the nuclear reconstitution of demembranated Orychophragmus violaceus sperm. The animal membrane ovules gathered in around the plant decondensed chromatin where double layer nuclear envelope gradually formed from fusing of membrane vesicles. The formation of nuclear skeleton structure in the reconstitution nucleus was observed by means of electron microscope technology of cell grade extract.
