Lingfang Zeng has his expertise in Stem Cell Research in Vascular Biology field, specifically on Mechanotransduction, Epigenetic Modification and Alternative Splicing. He has done extensive investigation on HDAC3, HDAC7 and IRE1α/XBP1 signal pathway. His current research focuses on Alternative Translation. His group found that small open reading frame within so-called non-coding area or non-coding RNA could be translated to produce functional small peptides. In addition to ATG, they found that other codons could also initiate the translation to produce more small peptides.
