The overarching goal is to develop novel technologies to elucidate molecular mechanisms of the innate immune response in host cells to pathogens such as bacteria and viruses including the mechanisms used by pathogens to subvert/suppress/obfuscate the immune response to cause their harmful effects. Innate immunity is our first line of defense against a pathogenic bacteria or virus. A comprehensive 'system-level' understanding of innate immunity pathways such as toll-like receptor (TLR) pathways… Expand

Calcium Signaling Dynamics in RBL Cells Under Pulsed Ligand Exposure
Understanding cellular signaling is important to learning about life at a fundamental level. As an extension of this, understanding the dysregulation of cell signaling is the key to identifying andExpand


Keeping up NF-kappaB appearances: epigenetic control of immunity or inflammation-triggered epigenetics.
The multilayered interplay of NF-kappaB signaling and epigenome dynamics, in achieving appropriate gene expression responses and transcriptional activity is discussed. Expand
Circuitry of nuclear factor κB signaling
The historical context is provided and the diverse physiological functions of NF‐κB in the immune system are summarized before focusing on recent advances in elucidating the molecular mechanisms that mediate cell type‐specific and stimulus‐specific functions of this pleiotropic signaling system.

Dynamic Proteomics of Individual Cancer Cells in Response to a Drug
A dynamic-proteomics approach is presented that measures the levels and locations of nearly 1000 different endogenously tagged proteins in individual living cells at high temporal resolution, and identifies proteins whose dynamics differ widely between cells, in a way that corresponds to the outcomes—cell death or survival.

Negative regulation of Toll-like receptor-mediated immune responses
The various negative regulatory mechanisms that have evolved to attenuate TLR signalling to maintain this immunological balance are discussed. Expand
Transient IκB Kinase Activity Mediates Temporal NF-κB Dynamics in Response to a Wide Range of Tumor Necrosis Factor-α Doses*
An iterative computational and experimental investigation of the dynamic properties of tumor necrosis factor (TNF)α-mediated activation of the transcription factor NF-κB revealed signaling characteristics that ensure robust TNFα- mediated cell-cell communication over considerable distances, allowing for fidelity of cellular inflammatory responses in infected tissue.

Achieving Stability of Lipopolysaccharide-Induced NF-κB Activation
Computational modeling of the two TLR4-dependent signaling pathways suggests that one pathway requires a time delay to establish early anti-phase activation of NF-κB by the two pathways. Expand
Minimal model of spiky oscillations in NF-κB signaling
The small core network driving the oscillations is examined, which shows that genes to whose operator sites NF-κB binds and dissociates fast can respond very sensitively to changes in the input signal, with effective Hill coefficients of >20. Expand
NF-κB regulation in the immune system
The role of NF-κB proteins as potential therapeutic targets in clinical applications and their role in the immune system and inflammatory diseases are discussed. Expand
Simultaneous measurement of multiple active kinase states using polychromatic flow cytometry
Polychromatic flow-cytometric active kinase measurements demonstrate that multidimensional analysis of signaling pathways can provide functional signaling pathway assessment on a single-cell level and allow for potential correlation with biological and clinical parameters. Expand
IκB kinase: Beginning, not the end
The Rel protein was first identified as a cellular homologue of viral Rel (v-Rel), the transforming component of avian reticuloendotheliosis virus (REV) and there was an indication that NF-κB proteins were possible oncogenes. Expand
