• AGAP2-AS1 as a prognostic biomarker in low-risk clear cell renal cell carcinoma patients with progressing disease 

      Strauss, Philipp; Marti, Hans-Peter; Furriol, Jessica; Nakken, Sigrid; Vidar, Beisvåg; Eikrem, Øystein Solberg; Beisland, Christian; Flatberg, Arnar; Bostad, Leif; Scherer, Andreas; Eleni, Skandalou (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Background Clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is the most common subtype of renal cancer and one of the most common cancers. While survival for localized ccRCC is good, the survival of metastatic disease is not, and ...
    • Analysis of salivary mycobiome in a cohort of oral squamous cell carcinoma patients from Sudan identifies higher salivary carriage of malassezia as an independent and favorable predictor of overall survival 

      Mohamed, Nazar; Litlekalsøy, Jorunn; Ahmed, Israa Abdul Rhman; Martinsen, Einar Marius Hjellestad; Furriol, Jessica; Javier-Lopez, Ruben; Elsheikh, Mariam; Mohamed, Nuha Mohamed Gaafar; Morgado, Luis; Mundra, Sunil; Johannessen, Anne Christine; Osman, Tarig Al-Hadi; Nginamau, Elisabeth Sivy; Suleiman, Ahmed; Costea, Daniela Elena (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021-10-12)
      Background: Microbial dysbiosis and microbiome-induced inflammation have emerged as important factors in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) tumorigenesis during the last two decades. However, the “rare biosphere” of the ...
    • AXL targeting by a specific small molecule or monoclonal antibody inhibits renal cell carcinoma progression in an orthotopic mice model 

      Chen, Tony Jialiang; Mydel, Piotr Mateusz; Benedyk-Machaczka, Małgorzata; Kamińska, Marta; Kalucka, Urszula; Blø, Magnus; Furriol, Jessica; Gausdal, Gro; Lorens, James Bradley; Osman, Tarig Al-Hadi; Marti, Hans Peter (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      AXL tyrosine kinase activation enhances cancer cell survival, migration, invasiveness, and promotes drug resistance. AXL overexpression is typically detected in a high percentage of renal cell carcinomas (RCCs) and is ...
    • 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 ...
    • Variable expression of eighteen common housekeeping genes in human non-cancerous kidney biopsies 

      Strauss, Philipp; Furriol, Jessica; mikkelsen, Håvard (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Housekeeping, or reference genes (RGs) are, by definition, loci with stable expression profiles that are widely used as internal controls to normalize mRNA levels. However, due to specific events, such as pathological ...
