Recently, Nature Plants (IF=11.47) published the on-line research paper entitled "The Plant ESCRT Component FREE1 Shuttles to the Nucleus to Attenuated Abscisic Acid Signaling" by Professor Gao Caiji of SCNU. The paper reports the new function of the FREE1 protein in regulating plant ABA signaling at transcription and revealed its mechanism.

Gao Caiji discovered FREE1, a plant-specific ESCRT complex component, and analyzed its function in regulating membrane protein transport and autophagic degradation. Relevant research results were published in Current Biology in 2014 and PNAS in 2015. In 2017, with the school of life Sciences of South China Normal University as the first author unit, while a review paper summarizing the research progress and research trend of Plant ESCRT function was published in the famous review journal Trends in Plant Science (5 years IF=13.18).

The research paper was completed by Gao Caiji’s research group at South China Normal University, with Professor Jiang Liwen and his research group at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Professor Pedro L. Rodriguez of the University of Valencia in Spain and Professor Zhao Yunde of the University of California, San Diego. Li Hongbo, a Ph. D. student of the 2016 cohort, Li Yingzhu, a Master of the 2016 cohort, and Dr. Joan Zhao of the Chinese University of Hong Kong are listed as co-authors of the paper. Professor Jiang Liwen, Chinese University of Hong Kong, Professor Wang Xiaojing, South China Normal University and Professor Gao Caiji (Liability Newsletter) are co-authors of the paper.
