Role of gingival lymphatics in tissue fluid balance and periodontal disease development
(The University of Bergen, 2012-05-25)
Background: The gingiva is frequently challenged to oral bacteria which are able to induce inflammatory responses with increased fluid filtration and edema formation in the tissue. Under given circumstances periodontal ...
Regulatory Peptides from Chromogranin A and Secretogranin II
This commentary is focusing on novel aspects on the secreted CgA- and SgII-derived peptides, vasostatin-I (bovine and human CgA1–76, VS-I), WE-14 (CgA316–329), catestatin (bovine CgA344–366, human CgA352–372, Cts) and the ...
Tumor oxygenation - influence on mammary tumor growth, progression and response to chemotherapy
(The University of Bergen, 2011-04-28)
Cellular responses to metabolic stress. A study on the role of mitochondria in the crosstalk between cell metabolism and survival signaling
(The University of Bergen, 2012-08-31)
Metabolic imbalance is associated with increased risk of several diseases, including cancer. Metabolism affects or is affected by virtually all other cellular processes, which is not surprising considering their conserved ...
Catestatin, an endogenous Chromogranin A-derived peptide, inhibits in vitro growth of Plasmodium falciparum
Catestatin, an endogenous peptide derived from bovine chromogranin A, and its active domain cateslytin display powerful antimicrobial activities. We have tested the activities of catestatin and other related peptides ...
Chronic Consumption of Farmed Salmon Containing Persistent Organic Pollutants Causes Insulin Resistance and Obesity in Mice
(Public Library of Science, 2011-09-23)
Background: Dietary interventions are critical in the prevention of metabolic diseases. Yet, the effects of fatty fish consumption on type 2 diabetes remain unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate whether a diet ...
Cognitive and psychosocial problems in children with epilepsy : a population-based approach
(The University of Bergen, 2007-01-12)
Survival signalling and apoptosis resistance in glioblastomas: opportunities for targeted therapeutics
(BioMed Central, 2010-06-01)
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common primary brain tumour in adults and one of the most aggressive cancers in man. Despite technological advances in surgical management, combined regimens of radiotherapy ...
Impact of hypoxia on the expression of cell line markers and behavior of cultured glioma cell lines
(The University of Bergen, 2011-06-01)
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) constitute over 50 % of primary brain tumors in adults. The tumor is heterogeneous and highly infiltrative. Its nature makes it extremely aggressive and incurable. Thus, today's treatment ...
