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 ...
The effect of hyperbaric oxygen treatment, alone or in combination with 5-FU, on a MDA-MB-231 human mammary tumor model
(The University of Bergen, 2012-06-20)
Background: Previous studies of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) treatment on chemically induced and murine breast cancer models have shown promising results. This study was performed to elucidate the effects of HBO on a human ...
Studies of α11β1 integrin in the mouse and human periodontal ligament

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. ...
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 ...

The Heart and a Fibrotic Interstitium
(The University of Bergen, 2009-05-29)
Several acute and chronic diseases disposes for myocardial oedema and fibrosis, leading to impaired cardiac function, presumably as a result of an increased chamber stiffness. Mechanisms and adverse effects of both oedema ...
The Arc of synaptic memory
The immediate early gene Arc is emerging as a versatile, Wnely tuned system capable of coupling changes in neuronal activity patterns to synaptic plasticity, thereby optimizing information storage in the nervous ...
Sleep and protein synthesis-dependent synaptic plasticity: impacts of sleep loss and stress
Sleep has been ascribed a critical role in cognitive functioning. Several lines of evidence implicate sleep in the consolidation of synaptic plasticity and long-term memory. Stress disrupts sleep while impairing synaptic ...
Automated Quantification and Integrative Analysis of 2D and 3D Mitochondrial Shape and Network Properties
Mitochondrial morphology and function are coupled in healthy cells, during pathological conditions and (adaptation to) endogenous and exogenous stress. In this sense mitochondrial shape can range from small globular ...
