• 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 ...

      Liu, Xiaozheng; Rulina, Anastasiia; Choi, Man Hung; Pedersen, Line; Lepland, Johanna; Takle, Sina Thorsen; Madeleine, Noëlly; Peters, Stacey D'mello; Wogsland, Cara Ellen; Grøndal, Sturla Magnus; Lorens, James Bradley; Goodarzi, Hani; Lønning, Per Eystein; Knappskog, Stian; Molven, Anders; Halberg, Nils Henrik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      Epidemiological studies have established a positive association between obesity and the incidence of postmenopausal breast cancer. Moreover, it is known that obesity promotes stem cell-like properties of breast cancer ...
    • High-dimensional immunotyping of tumors grown in obese and non-obese mice 

      Wogsland, Cara Ellen; Lien, Hilde Eide; Pedersen, Line; Hanjra, Pahul; Grøndal, Sturla Magnus; Brekken, Rolf A; Lorens, James Bradley; Halberg, Nils Henrik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Obesity is a disease characterized by chronic low-grade systemic inflammation and has been causally linked to the development of 13 cancer types. Several studies have been undertaken to determine whether tumors evolving ...
    • Phosphatidylserine receptors enhance SARS-CoV-2 infection 

      Bohan, Dana; Van Ert, Hanora; Ruggio, Natalie; Rogers, Kai J; Badreddine, Mohammad; Aguilar Briseno, José A; Elliff, Jonah; Rojas Chavez, Roberth Anthony; Gao, Boning; Stokowy, Tomasz; Christakou, Eleni; Kursula, Petri; Micklem, David Robert; Gausdal, Gro; Haim, Hillel; Minna, John; Lorens, James Bradley; Maury, Wendy (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Phosphatidylserine (PS) receptors enhance infection of many enveloped viruses through virion-associated PS binding that is termed apoptotic mimicry. Here we show that this broadly shared uptake mechanism is utilized by ...
