Biological Characteristics of Stem-Like Cells in Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma
(The University of Bergen, 2013-06-18)
It has been shown that many solid malignancies, including oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), contain a small population of tumorigenic cells referred to as cancer stem-like cells (CSCs) or tumor initiating cells (TICs). ...
Burkitt Lymphoma in Uganda. A study of some biological and epidemiological aspects of endemic Burkitt lymphoma
(The University of Bergen, 2011-08-25)
Gene signatures and prognostic factors in endometrial cancer. A study with special focus on vascular invasion
(The University of Bergen, 2011-04-15)
Proteogenomic Analysis of Polymorphisms and Gene Annotation Divergences in Prokaryotes using a Clustered Mass Spectrometry-Friendly Database
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 2011-01)
Precise annotation of genes or open reading frames is still a difficult task that results in divergence even for data generated from the same genomic sequence. This has an impact in further proteomic studies, and also ...
MicroRNA Alterations and Associated Aberrant DNA Methylation Patterns across Multiple Sample Types in Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma
(Public Library of Science, 2011-11-22)
Background: MicroRNA (miRNA) expression is broadly altered in cancer, but few studies have investigated miRNA deregulation in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). Epigenetic mechanisms are involved in the regulation of ...
pRb2/p130 protein expression and RBL2 mutation analysis in Burkitt lymphoma from Uganda
(BioMed Central, 2009-08-19)
Background: The members of the retinoblastoma protein family, pRb, p107 and pRb2 (p130), are central players in controlling the cell cycle. Whereas disturbed function of pRb is commonly seen in human cancers, it is still ...
Histological type and grade of breast cancer tumors by parity, age at birth, and time since birth: a register-based study in Norway
(BioMed Central, 2010-05-21)
Background Some studies have indicated that reproductive factors affect the risk of histological types of breast cancer differently. The long-term protective effect of a childbirth is preceded by a short-term adverse ...
Functional analysis of tilS homologues in Bacteria and Archaea
(The University of Bergen, 2005-09-09)
Out of all of the microorganisms sequenced so far about one third of the genes have unknown function. Several studies have shown that information on evolutionary relationships between unknown genes can aid in the prediction ...
The effect of influenza virus vaccine formulation : a potential for increased vaccine efficacy
(The University of Bergen, 2005-12-16)
Influenza remains one of the most serious viral diseases in the world, causing substantial morbidity and is responsible for at least one million deaths annually. A vast influenza virus reservoir exists in birds to which ...
Subtyping of breast cancer by immunohistochemistry to investigate a relationship between subtype and short and long term survival: a collaborative analysis of data for 10,159 cases from 12 studies
(Public Library of Science, 2010-05-25)
Background Immunohistochemical markers are often used to classify breast cancer into subtypes that are biologically distinct and behave differently. The aim of this study was to estimate mortality for patients with the ...
