 Avian flu: Beyond respiration

The avian flu virus H5N1 infects the respiratory tract and spreads to other organs in the human body. Other highlights from Nature China include Endometrial cancer, Turn pollution into power, Colon cancer and heart disease, Climate change and dust storms and Helical nanofibres

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.

Endometrial cancer: Driven by hormones
The upregulation of the LRP16 gene by oestrogen enhances the invasive capacity of endometrial cancer cells by inhibiting E-cadherin

Coke-oven gas: Turn pollution into power
Scientists in China have used commercial membranes to refine coke-oven gas into hydrogen and methane

Avian flu: Beyond respiration
The avian flu virus H5N1 infects the respiratory tract and spreads to other organs in the human body

Colon cancer : The link with heart disease
People with coronary artery disease are more likely to develop colon cancer than those without

Climate change: Dust in time
Dust storms in northern China have been strongly affected by climate changes over the past 1,000 years

Helical nanofibres: A twist to follow
Scientists in China have synthesized left- and right-handed helical conducting nanofibres
