    • The E3 SUMO ligase PIASγ is a novel interaction partner regulating the activity of diabetes associated hepatocyte nuclear factor-1α 

      Kaci, Alba; Keindl, Magdalena; Solheim, Marie Holm; Njølstad, Pål Rasmus; Bjørkhaug, Lise; Aukrust, Ingvild (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-08-24)
      The transcription factor hepatocyte nuclear factor-1α (HNF-1A) is involved in normal pancreas development and function. Rare variants in the HNF1A gene can cause monogenic diabetes, while common variants confer type 2 ...
    • The Female Menstrual Cycles Effect on Strength and Power Parameters in High-Level Female Team Athletes 

      Småvik Dasa, Marcus; Kristoffersen, Morten; Ersvær, Elisabeth; Bovim, Lars Peder Vatshelle; Bjørkhaug, Lise; Moe-Nilssen, Rolf; Sagen, Jørn Vegard; Haukenes, Inger (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Purpose: The female menstrual cycle (MC) is characterized by hormonal fluctuations throughout its different phases. However, research regarding its effect on athletic performance in high level athletes is sparse. The aim ...
    • In vitro characterization of six STUB1 variants in spinocerebellar ataxia 16 reveals altered structural properties for the encoded CHIP proteins 

      Pakdaman, Yasaman; Sanchez Guixe, Monica; Kleppe, Rune; Erdal, Sigrid; Bustad, Helene J.; Bjørkhaug, Lise; Haugarvoll, Kristoffer; Tzoulis, Charalampos; Heimdal, Ketil Riddervold; Knappskog, Per; Johansson, Stefan; Aukrust, Ingvild (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017)
      Spinocerebellar ataxia, autosomal recessive 16 (SCAR16) is caused by biallelic mutations in the STIP1 homology and U-box containing protein 1 (STUB1) gene encoding the ubiquitin E3 ligase and dimeric co-chaperone C-terminus ...
    • STUB1 mutations in autosomal recessive ataxias - evidence for mutation-specific clinical heterogeneity 

      Heimdal, Ketil; Sanchez-Guixé, Monica; Aukrust, Ingvild; Bollerslev, Jens; Bruland, Ove; Jablonski, Greg Eigner; Erichsen, Anne Kjersti; Gude, Einar; Koht, Jeanette A.; Erdal, Sigrid; Fiskerstrand, Torunn; Haukanes, Bjørn Ivar; Boman, Helge; Bjørkhaug, Lise; Tallaksen, Chantal M. E.; Knappskog, Per; Johansson, Stefan (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-09-26)
      Background: A subset of hereditary cerebellar ataxias is inherited as autosomal recessive traits (ARCAs). Classification of recessive ataxias due to phenotypic differences in the cerebellum and cerebellar structures is ...
    • Unsupervised clustering of missense variants in HNF1A using multidimensional functional data aids clinical interpretation 

      Althari, Sara; Najmi, Laeya Abdoli; Bennett, Amanda J.; Aukrust, Ingvild; Rundle, Jana K.; Colclough, Kevin; Molnes, Janne; Kaci, Alba; Nawaz, Sameena; van der Lugt, Timme; Hassanali, Neelam; Mahajan, Anubha; Molven, Anders; Ellard, Sian; McCarthy, Mark I.; Bjørkhaug, Lise; Njølstad, Pål Rasmus; Gloyn, Anna L. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020-10-01)
      Exome sequencing in diabetes presents a diagnostic challenge because depending on frequency, functional impact, and genomic and environmental contexts, HNF1A variants can cause maturity-onset diabetes of the young (MODY), ...
