The Insight-HXMT team has recently discovered a cyclotron absorption line with an energy of 146 keV in the neutron star X-ray binary Swift J0243.6+6124, corresponding to a surface magnetic field of more than 1.6 billion Tesla. After direct measurement of the strongest magnetic field in the universe at about 1 billion Tesla in 2020, the world records for the highest energy cyclotron absorption line and direct measurement of the strongest magnetic field in the universe have been refreshed significantly.

Using brain tissues from non-human primates (NHPs), the ideal model to mimic human hippocampal aging, scientists have worked jointly and established the first single-nucleus transcriptomic landscape of primate hippocampal aging. They revealed the molecular mechanism of its functional deterioration with age, and provided a valuable resource for the identification of new diagnostic biomarkers and potential therapeutic targets for interventions against hippocampal aging and related human neurodegenerative disorders.
A group of scientists have recently found that F. graminearum perithecia provided a specific ecological niche for bacteria that could play an important role in disease establishment. The researchers have deciphered the mechanism of the inhibitory effect of herbicolin A on fungi and identified its biosynthetic gene cluster. This discovery will support future progress in the sustainable management of Fusarium head blight worldwide.
