The pro-inflammatory cytokines interleukin 1 (IL-1) and 6 (IL-6) are crucially involved in the regulation of a multitude of physiological processes, in particular coordinating the immune response upon bacterial infection and tissue injury. Both interleukins induce complex signalling cascades and trigger the production of mitogenic, pro-proliferative,(More)
Mathematical modelling is increasingly becoming an indispensable tool for the study of cellular processes, allowing their analysis in a systematic and comprehensive manner. In the vast majority of the cases, models focus on specific subsystems, and in particular describe either metabolism, gene expression or signal transduction. Integrated models that are(More)
Systems biology has to increasingly cope with large- and multi-scale biological systems. Many successful in silico representations and simulations of various cellular modules proved mathematical modelling to be an important tool in gaining a solid understanding of biological phenomena. However, models spanning different functional layers (e.g. metabolism,(More)
