Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is an inherited muscle degeneration disease for which there is still no efficient treatment. However, compounds active on the disease may already exist among approved drugs but are difficult to identify in the absence of cellular models. We used the Caenorhabditis elegans animal model to screen a collection of 1000 already(More)
Caenorhabditis elegans strains carrying stress-reporter green fluorescent protein transgenes were used to explore patterns of response to metals. Multiple stress pathways were induced at high doses by most metals tested, including members of the heat shock, oxidative stress, metallothionein (mtl) and xenobiotic response gene families.

Increasing evidence indicates that numerous genetic pathways responding to environmental stress in animals are regulated co-ordinately as well as independently. These stress-response systems should therefore be viewed in holistic terms as a network. As such, their behaviour is susceptible to mathematical modelling using a systems biology approach. This(More)
