Mitochondria and hair cell: New topic of the group meeting on 14 Sep,
The Sperm Laboratory members gathered together on 14 Sep.,
2012. The topic "mitochondria DNA, nuclear DNA and hair cell function"
was discussed. Two students presented at the meeting. Mr.
Ling-Feng Luo talked about how nuclear genes control the hair cell,
Yi-Xun Su discussed the upstream and downstream genes of hes1,
hes5 in the hair cell. The Sperm Laboratory is involved in project which
is supported by the National Basic Research Program of China (973
Program, Grant number: No. 2012CB967902), we are working on gene
regulatory in hair cell.

The Sperm Laboratory submitted a research proposal to
National Nature Science Fundation of China in March 2012, it was
approved on 23 Aug., 2012. The new project, "The molecular mechanism of
p53 during apoptosis of spermatogenic cells in Chinese mitten crab
Eriocheir sinensis", will mainly focus on apoptosis of spermatogenic
cells in the mitten crab. The grant number is "41276151", the executive

that regulates acrosome biogenesis during spermiogenesis. The title is
"Interaction of SH3P13 and DYDC1 protein: a germ cell component that
regulates acrosome biogenesis during spermiogenesis." , which was
published on the European Journal of Cell Biology

The Second Group Meeting of the Spring Semester of 2011
The Sperm Laboratory's second group meeting was held on Mar. 4,
2011. Dr. Wan-Xi Yang called on all the lab members to unite together.
He summoned the students to read papers everyday and to do every
experiment and to observe the results carefully. The Sperm Laboratory
submitted a research proposal to National Natural Science Fundation of
China, Mr. Da-Hui Wang, the Ph.D. student at the Sperm Laboratory,
participated in writing the proposal. Ms. Xiao Sun, Ms. Cong-Cong Hou
and Mr. Hai-Tao Mao participated in discussing the proposal.
Group Meeting of the Spring Semester of 2011
The Sperm Laboratory's first group meeting was held on Feb. 25,
2011. Dr. Wan-Xi Yang presented at the meeting. He said our laboratory
is meeting new challenges in the new year, we must face all the
challenges and work harder for our own future. New regulations and basic
rules for the laboratory were announced at the meeting.
Party on Jan. 17, 2011
The Sperm Laboratory members sang together
at the Karaoke Party which was held at Kadi KTV House on Jan. 17, 2011.
This is the third Karaoke Party of the Sperm Laboratory. We stayed in
the Kadi KTV House for five hours and sang a lot of favorite songs. The

summarizing meeting on Jan. 14, 2011
The Sperm Laboratory held a summarizing
meeting on Jan. 14, 2011, Friday. Dr.
Wan-Xi Yang summarized the progresses of the whole lab in 2010.
Totally 7 research papers and 2 review articles were published in the
past year 2010. Two of the research papers were published on PLoS ONE.
A research proposal submitted to National Natural Science Fundation of
China (NSFC) was granted in August of 2010. A new cytoskeletal
structure, acroframosome (AFS) was discovered and named by the Sperm
Laboratory in 2010. AFS functions as an acrosome framework during
spermiogenesis in Caridean shrimp. Dr. Yang encouraged the whole members
to work shoulder by shoulder in the ongoing 2011, so we could have more
discoveries in the reproductive biology field..
