DNA methylation changes at a discrete set of sites in the human genome are predictive of chronological and biological age. However, it is not known whether these changes are causative or a consequence of an underlying ageing process. It has also not been shown whether this epigenetic clock is unique to humans or conserved in the more experimentally(More)
The activation of TLRs by microbial molecules triggers intracellular-signaling cascades and the expression of cytokines such as IL-10. Il10 expression is tightly controlled to ensure effective immune responses, while preventing pathology. Maximal TLR-induction of Il10 transcription in macrophages requires signaling through the MAPKs, ERK, and p38. Signals(More)
Fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) has previously been shown to provide contrast between normal and diseased tissue. Here we present progress towards clinical and preclinical FLIM endoscopy of tissue autofluorescence, demonstrating a flexible wide-field endoscope that utilised a low average power blue picosecond laser diode excitation source and was able(More)
Inflammation is recognized as one of the drivers of cancer. Yet, the individual immune components that possess pro- and anti-tumorigenic functions in individual cancers remain largely unknown. NKG2D is a potent activating immunoreceptor that has emerged as an important player in inflammatory disorders besides its well-established function as tumour(More)
