Reduction of mitochondrial mass extends lifespan and protects against glucotoxicity

Reduction of mitochondrial mass extends lifespan and protects against glucotoxicity

Interdisciplinary scientific collaboration between the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (IMBB, FORTH), and the Institute of Chemical Engineering Sciences (ICE-HT, FORTH), sheds light onto the interplay between metabolism and the rate of ageing.

IL-33-decorated neutrophil extracellular traps promote IFNα production in SLE

IL-33-decorated neutrophil extracellular traps promote IFNα production in SLE

Work by the Laboratory of Rheumatology, Autoimmunity and Inflammation demonstrates neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) decorated with bioactive IL-33 in the blood and inflamed tissues of patients with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). IL-33-decorated NETs induce IFNα synthesis by plasmatocytoid dendritic cells through the ST2L receptor.
