EASTBIO: *Closing Date 10.04.21* Developing proteomics to look at the regulation of innate lymphoid cells by IL-33

Type 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2s) play key roles in mediating type 2 immune responses, however beyond their ability to produce cytokines the function and regulation is still poorly understood.  ILC2s are activated by IL-33 and IL-25, both of which are important in the response to helminth infections.   In this project will look at the changes in ILC2s induced by these cytokines, focusing on functions that would help shape the Th2 immune response.  Previous studies on ILC2s have been limited by the low numbers of ILC2s in the body, however recent advances in proteomics and mass spectromet

EASTBIO: CD8+ T cells in 4-D: characterisation of protein-protein interaction dynamics during T cell activation: Dr T Ly; Dr D Clarke

Advances in mass spectrometry-based proteomics enables comprehensive, quantitative analysis of protein abundance [1] and protein modification by PTMs like phosphorylation. Analysis of protein-protein interactions in a comprehensive fashion remains challenging. Progress has been made using protein correlation profiling (PCP) [2], which combines separations of native protein complexes with MS detection. However, a drawback to PCP is that direct evidence for protein-protein interaction is lacking.
