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 ...
Studies of α11β1 integrin in the mouse and human periodontal ligament
(The University of Bergen, 2009-06-12)
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)
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 ...
LTP mechanisms in the dentate gyrus in vivo: BDNF signaling, translation control, and gene function

Reduced Joint Pain after Short-term Duodenal Administration of Seal Oil in Patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Comparison with Soy Oil
(Taylor & Francis, 2004)
Background: Rheumatic joint pain is a common extraintestinal complication of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Because the high ratio of n-6 to n-3 fatty acids (FAs) of the Western diet might promote rheumatic disorders, ...
Biomedical Image Processing in the Study of Living Cells

Increased plasma colloid osmotic pressure facilitates the uptake of therapeutic macromolecules in a xenograft tumour model
Elevated tumor interstitial fluid pressure (TIFP) is a characteristic of most solid tumors. Clinically, TIFP may hamper the uptake of chemotherapeutic drugs into the tumor tissue reducing their therapeutic efficacy. In ...
A co-culture model with brain tumor-specific bioluminescence demonstrates astrocyte-induced drug resistance in glioblastoma
(BioMed Central, 2014-10-04)
Background: Although several studies suggest that stromal fibroblasts mediate treatment resistance in several cancer types, little is known about how tumor-associated astrocytes modulate the treatment response in brain ...
