      Dölle, Christian; Flønes, Irene Hana; Sanchez Nido, Gonzalo; Miletic, Hrvoje; Osuagwu, Nelson; Kristoffersen, Stine; Lilleng, Peer Kåre; Larsen, Jan Petter; Tysnes, Ole-Bjørn; Haugarvoll, Kristoffer; Bindoff, Laurence; Tzoulis, Charalampos (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016-11-22)
      Increased somatic mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) mutagenesis causes premature aging in mice, and mtDNA damage accumulates in the human brain with aging and neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson disease (PD). Here, we ...
    • Mitochondrial respiratory chain deficiency correlates with the severity of neuropathology in sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease 

      Flønes, Irene Hana; Ricken, Gerda; Klotz, Sigrid; Lang, Alexandra; Ströbel, Thomas; Dölle, Christian; Kovacs, Gabor G.; Tzoulis, Charalampos (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Mitochondrial dysfunction has been implicated in multiple neurodegenerative diseases but remains largely unexplored in Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Here, we characterize the mitochondrial respiratory chain at the individual ...
