The results suggest the presence and distribution of diverse soil fungal communities in the High Arctic, which can provide reliable data for studying the ecological responses of soilfungal communities to climate changes in the Arctic.
Uralsaponins M-Y, antiviral triterpenoid saponins from the roots of Glycyrrhiza uralensis.
Thirteen new oleanane-type triterpenoid saponins, uralsaponins M-Y (1-13), and 15 known analogues (14-28) were isolated from the roots of Glycyrrhiza uralensis Fisch, reporting saponins containing a galacturonic acid or xylose residue for the first time.
Sinosporangium album gen. nov., sp. nov., a new member of the suborder Streptosporangineae.
A Gram-positive, aerobic, non-motile actinobacterium, designated strain 6014(T), was isolated from a soil sample collected from Qinghai province, north-west China, and subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study, which revealed that the strain formed a distinct lineage next to genera of the family Streptosporangiaceae.

Heat Stress Cognate 70 Host Protein as a Potential Drug Target against Drug Resistance in Hepatitis B Virus
Host Hsc70 could be a novel drug target against HBV, and OMTR appears to inhibit HBV replication by destabilizing Hsc80 mRNA, which is not a viral protein.
