Herpesviral interactomics. Intraviral and virus-host protein-protein interaction network from different species of herpesviruses
(The University of Bergen, 2008-02-01)
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 ...
Benefit from B-Lymphocyte Depletion Using the Anti- CD20 Antibody Rituximab in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. A Double-Blind and Placebo-Controlled Study
(Public Library of Science, 2011-10-19)
Background: Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a disease of unknown aetiology. Major CFS symptom relief during cancer chemotherapy in a patient with synchronous CFS and lymphoma spurred a pilot study of B-lymphocyte depletion ...
Interactions between Fusobacterium nucleatum and Primary Human Oral Cells: In Vitro Studies in Monolayer and Organotypic Culture Models
(The University of Bergen, 2012-06-21)
F. nucleatum is a Gram-negative bacterium, member of normal flora in the oral cavity, which has a major role in the formation of the subgingival biofilm. The adhesins expressed on the cell wall outer membrane confer F. ...
Influence of oral mucosal lesions and oral symptoms on oral health related quality of life in dermatological patients: a cross sectional study in Sudan
Background: There are only few studies considering the impact of oral mucosal lesions (OML) on the oral quality of life of patients with different dermatological conditions. This study aimed to assess the relationship ...
Type 1 plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI-1) in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (CCRCC) and its impact on angiogenesis, progression and patient survival after radical nephrectomy
(BioMed Central, 2010-12-03)
Background To examine the expression of type 1 plasminogen inhibitor (PAI-1) in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (CCRCC), and its possible association with microvessel density (MVD), the expression of thrombospondin-1 ...
Sjögren’s syndrome: studying the disease in mice
(BioMed Central, 2011-06-13)
Sjögren’s syndrome (SS), a systemic autoimmune disease, is characterized by infl ammation of exocrine tissues accompanied by a signifi cant loss of their secretory function. Clinical symptoms develop late and there are ...
Global profiling of histone and DNA methylation reveals epigenetic-based regulation of gene expression during epithelial to mesenchymal transition in prostate cells
(BioMed Central, 2010-11-25)
Background: Previously we reported extensive gene expression reprogramming during epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) of primary prostate cells. Here we investigated the hypothesis that specific histone and DNA ...
High accuracy mass spectrometry analysis as a tool to verify and improve gene annotation using Mycobacterium tuberculosis as an example
(BioMed Central, 2008-07-02)
Background: While the genomic annotations of diverse lineages of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex are available, divergences between gene prediction methods are still a challenge for unbiased protein dataset ...
Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition of a Primary Prostate Cell Line with Switches of Cell Adhesion Modules but without Malignant Transformation
(Public Library of Science, 2008-10-13)
Background: Epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) has been connected with cancer progression in vivo and the generation of more aggressive cancer cell lines in vitro. EMT has been induced in prostate cancer cell ...
