New Call For Papers

We invite the submission of original papers to one of the following Calls for Papers by the deadline of 30 November 2015:

  1. Post-translational modifications of proteins: clinical implications
  2. Mitochondria: biology and pathology
  3. Obesity and co-morbidities

Meeting Highlights

Metabolic Drivers of Immunity
Obesity and nutrient excess are associated with inflammatory phenotypes and immune dysfunction. This joint Biochemical Society/British Society for Immunology conference will bring together key players to present emerging research on the importance of metabolism to normal maturation and differentiation of immune cells.
Abstract submission deadline extended to 28th Jan 2015 - submit here

Experimental Biology 2015

Determining the role of NADPH oxidases in the context of virus infection is an emerging area of research, with accumulating evidence revealing distinct facets of the involvement of NOX/DUOX in host antiviral and pro-inflammatory responses and in the control of the epithelial barrier integrity. In this Review Article commissioned for the NADPH Oxidase review series, the authors summarize the current knowledge of the role of individual NOX/DUOX isoforms expressed in the lung epithelium in the context of respiratory virus infections and highlight potential opportunities for therapeutic intervention.
