Expression of the progenitor marker NG2/CSPG4 predicts poor survival and resistance to ionising radiation in glioblastoma Svendsen, Agnete; Verhoeff, Joost J. C.; Immervoll, Heike; Brøgger, Jan C.; Kmiecik, Justyna; Poli, Aurélie; Netland, Inger A.; Planagumà, Jesús; Torsvik, Anja; Sakariassen, Per Øystein; Bjerkvig, Rolf; Enger, Per Øyvind; Tronstad, Karl Johan (Springer, 2011-08-24)Glioblastoma (GBM) is a highly aggressive brain tumour, where patients respond poorly to radiotherapy and exhibit dismal survival outcomes. The mechanisms of radioresistance are not completely understood. However, cancer ...Peer reviewedJournal article
U-251 revisited: genetic drift and phenotypic consequences of long-term cultures of glioblastoma cells Torsvik, Anja; Stieber, Daniel; Enger, Per Øyvind; Golebiewska, Anna; Molven, Anders; Svendsen, Agnete; Westermark, Bengt; Niclou, Simone P.; Olsen, Thale Kristin; Chekenya, PhD, Dr Philos, Dr. Martha; Bjerkvig, Rolf (Wiley, 2014-08)It is well known that in vitro subculture represents a selection pressure on cell lines, and over time this may result in a genetic drift in the cancer cells. In addition, long-term cultures harbor the risk of cross-contamination ...Journal article
