Hyperoxic Treatment Induces Mesenchymal-to-Epithelial Transition in a Rat Adenocarcinoma Model
(Public Library of Science, 2009-07-28)
Tumor hypoxia is relevant for tumor growth, metabolism and epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT). We report that hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) treatment induced mesenchymal-to-epithelial transition (MET) in a dimetyl-a-b ...
An electrophysiological study in freely exploring rats - Place cell properties and place field stability in the absence or presence of reward as a motivational factor.
(The University of Bergen, 2009-06-02)
The activity of pyramidal cells in the hippocampus can be spatially modulated. Numerous studies have been performed examining their properties, like what influences the position of their firing fields or what effect changes ...
A randomized double blind comparison of short-term duodenally administrated whale and seal blubber oils in patients with inflammatory bowel disease and joint pain
Compared with soy oil, 10 days treatment with seal oil (SO), 10 mL×3 daily, self-administrated through a nasoduodenal feeding tube, relieves joint pain in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). This randomized, ...
Melanoma brain metastatis. Animal models, detection and therapy interventions
(The University of Bergen, 2013-12-11)
Preparing for an influenza pandemic: Re-evaluating the use of the whole inactivated virus vaccine formulation. –A comparison of the immune responses after intramuscular or intranasal immunization with an influenza H5N1 whole inactivated virus vaccine in a murine model.
(The University of Bergen, 2009-10-22)
Influenza is a highly contagious respiratory disease which infects millions of people every year around the world. Influenza viruses undergo continuous antigen change and annual vaccination is an effective prophylactic ...
Biological responses of dental pulp stem cells to surfaces modified by collagen 1 and fibronectin
(The University of Bergen, 2014-01-18)
Collagen 1 and fibronectin are extracellular matrix proteins that contribute in cell activity and involve in regulating dental pulp stem cells. The purpose of this in vitro study was to investigate the effect of collagen ...
Abrogation of Anthracycline and Ischemia-Reperfusion Induced Injury by Cell Signaling Modulators
(The University of Bergen, 2013-10-18)
Chemotherapy has a long history in cancer treatment, and the anthracycline used in Paper I and II are among the most effective anti-cancer drugs developed. Unfortunately, the use of anthracyclines is dose-restricted due ...
Phospholipase D in human blood platelets
(The University of Bergen, 2008-05-30)
We have studied phospholipase D (PLD) in human blood platelets. This enzyme hydrolyzes phosphatidylcholine to phosphatidic acid (PA) and choline, where PA is considered to be the main effector of PLDs function in cells. ...
Studies on viral gene transfer and angiogenesis inhibition in experimental glioma models
(The University of Bergen, 2006-11-03)
Mass spectrometry-based proteomics of human cerebrospinal fluid. Biomarker discovery and verification in multiple sclerosis
(The University of Bergen, 2012-06-01)
The main focus of this study was to use mass spectrometry-based proteomics to study protein abundance in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) to reveal proteins that could serve as biomarker candidates in multiple sclerosis (MScl). By ...
