Debug Your Bugs - How NLRs Shape Intestinal Host-Microbe Interactions.

The host's ability to discriminate friend and foe and to establish a precise homeostasis with its associated microbiota is crucial for its survival an...

How do your contacts (or their absence) shape your fate?
Tissue accumulation of contractile myofibroblasts is a key feature of a multitude of fibrotic diseases. Myofibroblast generation either from epithelial or mesenchymal precursors involves the activation of a myogenic program, hallmarked by the express

Alcohol Lowers Your (Intestinal) Inhibitions.
Alcohol causes microbiota dysbiosis and breaches intestinal integrity, resulting in liver inflammation and ultimately cirrhosis. In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, Wang et al. (2016) demonstrate that ethanol suppresses the intestinal anti-microbia

The intestinal microbiome and skeletal fitness: Connecting bugs and bones.
Recent advances have dramatically increased our understanding of how organ systems interact. This has been especially true for immunology and bone biology, where the term "osteoimmunology" was coined to capture this relationship. The importance of th

How to plan your doctorate.
Do you have an idea that you believe would make a great piece of research and could lead to a PhD, but are unsure of what to do?

How to progress your career.
If your job is losing its sparkle, it could be time to think about other options. But how do you weigh up whether a move will result in career development or a dead end?

Evolution determines how global warming and pesticide exposure will shape predator-prey interactions with vector mosquitoes.
How evolution may mitigate the effects of global warming and pesticide exposure on predator-prey interactions is directly relevant for vector control. Using a space-for-time substitution approach, we addressed how 4°C warming and exposure to the pest

How Phytohormones Shape Interactions between Plants and the Soil-Borne Fungus Fusarium oxysporum.
Plants interact with a huge variety of soil microbes, ranging from pathogenic to mutualistic. The Fusarium oxysporum (Fo) species complex consists of ubiquitous soil inhabiting fungi that can infect and cause disease in over 120 different plant speci

How anchoring proteins shape pain.
Cellular responsiveness to external stimuli can be altered by extracellular mediators which activate membrane receptors, in turn signalling to the intracellular space via calcium, cyclic nucleotides, membrane lipids or enzyme activity. These signalli
