      Hoseth, Eva Zsuzsanna; Krull, Florian; Dieset, Ingrid; Mørch, Ragni Helene; Hope, Sigrun; Gardsjord, Erlend Strand; Steen, Nils Eiel; Melle, Ingrid; Brattbakk, Hans-Richard; Steen, Vidar Martin; Aukrust, Pål; Djurovic, Srdjan; Andreassen, Ole Andreas; Ueland, Thor (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-03-28)
      The Notch signaling pathway plays a crucial role in neurodevelopment and in adult brain homeostasis. We aimed to further investigate Notch pathway activity in bipolar disorder (BD) and schizophrenia (SCZ) by conducting a ...
    • Effects of duodenal switch alone or in combination with sleeve gastrectomy on body weight and lipid metabolism in rats 

      Gudbrandsen, Oddrun Anita; Kodama, Yosuke; Mjøs, Svein Are; Zhao, Chun-Mei; Johannesen, Helene; Brattbakk, Hans-Richard; Haugen, Christine; Kulseng, Bård Eirik; Mellgren, Gunnar; Chen, Duan (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014)
      Background: A combined procedure of sleeve gastrectomy and duodenal switch (SG+DS) has been applied to the treatment of super obesity. The aim of the present study was to test whether duodenal switch alone (DS) leads to ...
    • Exploring the Wnt signaling pathway in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder 

      Hoseth, Eva Zsuzsanna; Krull, Florian; Dieset, Ingrid; Mørch, Ragni Helene; Hope, Sigrun; Gardsjord, Erlend Strand; Steen, Nils Eiel; Melle, Ingrid; Brattbakk, Hans-Richard; Steen, Vidar Martin; Aukrust, Pål; Djurovic, Srdjan; Andreassen, Ole Andreas; Ueland, Thor (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018)
      The Wnt signaling pathway plays a crucial role in neurodevelopment and in regulating the function and structure of the adult nervous system. Schizophrenia (SCZ) and bipolar disorder (BD) are severe mental disorders with ...
    • Expression of TCN1 in Blood is Negatively Associated with Verbal Declarative Memory Performance 

      Akkouh, Ibrahim; Ueland, Torill; Andreassen, Ole Andreas; Brattbakk, Hans-Richard; Steen, Vidar Martin; Hughes, Timothy; Djurovic, Srdjan (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-08-23)
      Memory is indispensable for normal cognitive functioning, and the ability to store and retrieve information is central to mental health and disease. The molecular mechanisms underlying complex memory functions are largely ...
    • Genetic variation in metronidazole metabolism and oxidative stress pathways in clinical giardia lamblia assemblage A and B isolates 

      Saghaug, Christina Skår; Klotz, Christian; Kallio, Juha Pekka; Brattbakk, Hans-Richard; Stokowy, Tomasz; Aebischer, Toni; Kursula, Inari; Langeland, Nina; Hanevik, Kurt (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-05-10)
      Purpose: Treatment-refractory Giardia cases have increased rapidly within the last decade. No markers of resistance nor a standardized susceptibility test have been established yet, but several enzymes and their pathways ...
    • Whole genome sequencing of clinical isolates of Giardia lamblia 

      Hanevik, Kurt; Bakken, R.; Brattbakk, Hans-Richard; Saghaug, Christina Skår; Langeland, Nina (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015-10-29)
      Clinical isolates from protozoan parasites such as Giardia lamblia are at present practically impossible to culture. By using simple cyst purification methods, we show that Giardia whole genome sequencing of clinical stool ...
