Factor-inhibiting HIF deficiency is found to create a tumour-promoting immune microenvironment

Lu Ratcliffe

A collaborative study by the Lu and Ratcliffe research groups has found that the tumour-promoting immune microenvironment can be created by a deficiency in factor-inhibiting HIF.

Control of Wnt signalling by KDM5C during development impacts cognition

Melanoma Genomic Instability increased by DNA damage remodelling the MITF interactome

Goding

The Goding lab shows that Microphthalmia-associated Transcription Factor (MITF) plays a non-transcriptional role in shaping the DNA Damage Response programmes. MITF is phosphorylated on exposure to DNA damaging agents, and interacts with a DNA repair complex, increasing the level of genomic instability within cells which can have an impact on cancer initiation.

Ludwig Oxford celebrates the end of a successful year
