• Gene expression profiles in rat brain disclose CNS signature genes and regional patterns of functional specialisation 

      Stansberg, Christine; Vik-Mo, Audun O.; Holdhus, Rita; Breilid, Harald; Srebro, Boleslaw; Petersen, Kjell; Jørgensen, Hugo A.; Jonassen, Inge; Steen, Vidar Martin (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2007-04-04)
      Background: The mammalian brain is divided into distinct regions with structural and neurophysiological differences. As a result, gene expression is likely to vary between regions in relation to their cellular composition ...
    • Gene expression response in peripheral blood cells of petroleum workers exposed to sub-ppm benzene levels 

      Jørgensen, Katarina Mariann; Mosleth, Ellen Færgestad; Liland, Kristian Hovde; Hopf, Nancy Brenna; Holdhus, Rita; Stavrum, Anne-Kristin; Gjertsen, Bjørn Tore; Kirkeleit, Jorunn (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-10-27)
      Altered gene expression in pathways relevant to leukaemogenesis, as well as reduced levels of circulating lymphocytes, have been reported in workers that were exposed to benzene concentrations below 1 ppm. In this study, ...
    • Switch from stress response to homeobox transcription factors in Adipose tissue after profound fat loss 

      Dankel, Simon N; Fadnes, Dag J.; Stavrum, Anne-Kristin; Stansberg, Christine; Holdhus, Rita; Hoang, Tuyen Thi Van; Veum, Vivian L.; Christensen, Bjørn Jostein; Våge, Villy; Sagen, Jørn V.; Steen, Vidar Martin; Mellgren, Gunnar (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2010-06-09)
      Background In obesity, impaired adipose tissue function may promote secondary disease through ectopic lipid accumulation and excess release of adipokines, resulting in systemic low-grade inflammation, insulin resistance ...
