• AXL targeting reduces fibrosis development in experimental unilateral ureteral obstruction 

      Landolt, Lea Zoe; Furriol, Jessica; Babickova, Janka; Ahmed, Lavina; Eikrem, Øystein Solberg; Skogstrand, Trude; Scherer, Andreas; Suliman, Salwa; Leh, Sabine Maria; Lorens, James; Gausdal, Gro; Marti, Hans-Peter; Osman, Tarig Al-Hadi (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      The AXL receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) is involved in partial epithelial-tomesenchymal transition (EMT) and inflammation – both main promoters of renal fibrosis development. The study aim was to investigate the role of AXL ...
    • Axl-inhibitor bemcentinib alleviates mitochondrial dysfunction in the unilateral ureter obstruction murine model 

      Hoel, August; Osman, Tarig; Hoel, Fredrik; Elsaid, Hassan Osman Alhassan; Chen, Tony; Landolt, Lea Zoe; Babickova, Janka; Tronstad, Karl Johan; Lorens, James B.; Gausdal, Gro; Marti, Hans-Peter; Furriol, Jessica (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Renal fibrosis is a progressive histological manifestation leading to chronic kidney disease (CKD) and associated with mitochondrial dysfunction. In previous work, we showed that Bemcentinib, an Axl receptor tyrosine kinase ...
    • Disease-specific phenotypes in iPSC-derived neural stem cells with POLG mutations 

      Liang, Xiao; Kristiansen, Cecilie Katrin; Mostafavi, Sepideh; Vatne, Guro H.; Zantingh, Gina; Kianian, Atefeh; Tzoulis, Charalampos; Høyland, Lena Elise; Ziegler, Mathias; Perez, Roberto Megias; Furriol, Jessica; Zhang, Zhuoyuan; Balafkan, Novin; Hong, Yu; Siller, Richard; Sullivan, Gareth; Bindoff, Laurence (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Mutations in POLG disrupt mtDNA replication and cause devastating diseases often with neurological phenotypes. Defining disease mechanisms has been hampered by limited access to human tissues, particularly neurons. Using ...
    • Oxidative stress in susceptibility to breast cancer: study in Spanish population 

      Rodrigues, Patricia; de Marco, Griselda; Furriol, Jessica; Mansego, Maria L.; Pineda-Alonso, Mónica; Gonzalez-Neira, Anna; Martin-Escudero, Juan C.; Benitez, Javier; Lluch, Ana; Chaves, Felipe J.; Eroles, Pilar (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-11-21)
      Background: Alterations in the redox balance are involved in the origin, promotion and progression of cancer. Inter-individual differences in the oxidative stress regulation can explain a part of the variability in cancer ...
