BACKGROUND Biological effects of nuclear factor-kappaB (NF kappaB) can differ tremendously depending on the cellular context. For example, NF kappaB induced by interleukin-1 (IL-1) is converted from an inhibitor of death receptor induced apoptosis into a promoter of ultraviolet-B radiation (UVB)-induced apoptosis. This conversion requires prolonged NF(More)
NOD1 is an intracellular pathogen recognition receptor that contributes to anti-bacterial innate immune responses, adaptive immunity and tissue homeostasis. NOD1-induced signaling relies on actin remodeling, however, the details of the connection of NOD1 and the actin cytoskeleton remained elusive. Here, we identified in a druggable-genome wide siRNA screen(More)
The Yellow-legged Gull Larus michahellis is generally considered to be sedentary and dispersive, with long-distance dispersal of young birds developing after the 1970s. In this paper, we present the analysis of the movement of the Yellow-legged Gulls from the eastern Adriatic coast based on observations of colour-ringed birds marked between 1999 and 2011. A(More)
Stimulation of human epithelial cells with IL-1 (10 ng/ml) + UVB radiation results in sustained NFκB activation caused by continuous IKKβ phosphorylation. We have recently published a strictly reduced ordinary differential equation model elucidating the involved mechanisms. Here, we compare model extensions for low IL-1 doses (0.5 ng/ml), where delayed IKKβ(More)
