  • Our Labs New book Chapter - Exercise and DNA methylation in skeletal muscle (Sept 2019) Click the Link for the chapter PDF
  • Our UBR5 paper published in full: The Journal of Physiology - Our latest paper has been accepted and is now online in The Journal of Physiology! Click here for the paper! Key points for the paper include: We have recently identified that a HECT domain E3 ubiquitin ligase, named UBR5, is altered epigenetically (via DNA methylation) after human skeletal muscle hypertrophy, where its gene expression is […]
  • Our new paper is out! UBR5, a Novel E3 Ligase in Skeletal Muscle Hypertrophy & Atrophy - See our latest paper published as a Pre-Print in BioRxiv (click for PDF) where we show that UBR5 is a novel E3 Ubiquitin Ligase important for skeletal muscle hypertrophy & recovery from atrophy after disuse and injury. Also, that it has opposite roles to other well known E3 Ubiquitin Ligases, MuRF1 and MAFbx! We use several […]
  • Comparative transcriptome and epigenome paper published in full! - Our latest paper is out! @SciReports (PDF). Using ‘big data’ (bioinformatical) analysis we identify genes that are both epigenetically altered as well as turned on/off across the entire genome after acute exercise, muscle growth, detraining & retraining. Great work authors @dcturner93 & @RobbySeaborne In this new @SciReports paper (PDF), we identify epigenetically altered pathways in muscle hypertrophy that include […]
  • Our latest Epigenetics paper has been posted as a Pre-Print! - We have just released our latest article as a pre-print in Bioarxiv (PDF) while it is currently under review with Scientific Reports. This work undertakes large scale bioinformatical analysis by pooling the publicly available transcriptome data after acute and chronic resistance exercise in human skeletal muscle and comparing these large data sets with our genome-wide […]
