Paper in Epigenetics: Hypoxia and hypoxia mimetics differentially modulate histone post-translational modifications – Collaborative work with Chris Schofield, Louise Walport, James McCullagh, Richard Hopkinson and Emily Flashman groups where we report the use of LCMS based intact histone assay to look at the global changes in histone PTMs in response to hypoxia / compound treatment – read the full paper here
Paper in JBC – Engineered anti-inflammatory peptides inspired by mapping an evasin-chemokine interaction. Our latest paper on the development of anti-inflammatory peptides inspired by tick evasins is out now in Journal of Biological Chemistry. Multi-disciplinary collaborative work with Prof. Shoumo Bhattacharya & Prof. Carol Robinson Groups, with Benoit Darlot & James Eaton from the group leading the study. This work was funded by the BHF, Oxford BHF Centre for Research Excellence and SBM.
Paper in Oncogene – Systematic characterization of chromatin modifying enzymes identifies KDM3B as a critical regulator in castration resistant prostate cancer. Our collaborative work with Dr Nathan Lack’s laboratory (Koç University / Turkey and Vancouver Prostate Centre /Canada) is finally out! Hilal Saraç has led this study on how KDM3B has been identified to be important in the proliferation of castrate resistant prostate cancers. This work was funded by the Royal Society Newton Advance Fellowship. Hilal’s beautiful waterfall plot figure – epigenetic shRNA library screening identifies KDM3B (red) to be essential for CRPC proliferation
