Activation of the transcription factor NF-kappaB is central to control of immune and inflammatory responses. Cytokine induced activation through the classical or canonical pathway relies on degradation of the inhibitor, IkappaBalpha and regulation by the IKKbeta kinase. In addition, the NF-kappaB is activated through the NF-kappaB-inducing kinase, NIK.(More)
Host defense against infection is induced by Toll-like and interleukin (IL)-1 receptors, and controlled by the transcription factor NF-kappaB. Our earlier studies have shown that IL-1 activation impacts cytoskeletal structure and that IL-1 receptor (IL-1RI) function is substrate-dependent. Here we identify a novel regulatory component, TILRR, which(More)
Agent based modelling is a methodology for simulating a variety of systems across a broad spectrum of fields. However, due to the complexity of the systems it is often impossible or impractical to model them at a one to one scale. In this paper we use a simple reaction rate model implemented using the FLAME framework to test the impact of common methods for(More)
Computational modelling and simulation is increasingly being used to complement traditional wet-lab techniques when investigating the mechanistic behaviours of complex biological systems. In order to ensure computational models are fit for purpose, it is essential that the abstracted view of biology captured in the computational model, is clearly and(More)
The transcription factor NF-κB (nuclear factor kappa B) is activated by Toll-like receptors and controlled by mechanotransduction and changes in the cytoskeleton. In this study we combine 3-D predictive protein modelling and in vitro experiments with in silico simulations to determine the role of the cytoskeleton in regulation of NF-κB. Simulations used a(More)
The TLRs and IL-1 receptors have evolved to coordinate the innate immune response following pathogen invasion. Receptors and signalling intermediates of these systems are generally characterised by a high level of evolutionary conservation. The recently described IL-1R1 co-receptor TILRR is a transcriptional variant of the FREM1 gene. Here we investigate(More)
The unraveling of the complex dynamic networks that underlie cellular (and, by extension, tissue, organ, and organism) function requires sophisticated mathematical models and, in order to test those models, rich data sets. In addition, even in clonal populations of cells, there is a wide range of variability in cellular function at any given time, even in(More)
