• Absence of the proteoglycan decorin reduces glucose tolerance in overfed male mice 

      Svärd, Jessica; Røst, Therese Halvorsen; Sommervoll, Camilla Elise Nergård; Haugen, Christine; Gudbrandsen, Oddrun Anita; Christensen, Anne Elisabeth; Rødahl, Eyvind; Fernø, Johan; Dankel, Simon N; Sagen, Jørn V.; Mellgren, Gunnar (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Studies have implicated the extracellular matrix (ECM) of adipose tissue in insulin resistance. The proteoglycan decorin, a component of ECM, has been associated with glucose tolerance, but possible causal effects on ...
    • K+ regulates relocation of Pellino-2 to the site of NLRP3 inflammasome activation in macrophages 

      Cristea, Ileana; Bruland, Ove; Rødahl, Eyvind; Bredrup, Cecilie (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Pellino proteins are E3 ubiquitin ligases involved in the innate immune system. Recently, Pellino-2 was reported to modulate the activation of the mouse Nlrp3 inflammasome. We examined the intracellular localization of ...
    • Pellino-2 in nonimmune cells: novel interaction partners and intracellular localization 

      Cristea, Ileana; Bruland, Ove; Rødahl, Eyvind; Bredrup, Cecilie (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Pellino-2 is an E3 ubiquitin ligase that mediates intracellular signaling in innate immune pathways. Most studies of endogenous Pellino-2 have been performed in macrophages, but none in nonimmune cells. Using yeast two-hybrid ...
    • Temperature-dependent autoactivation associated with clinical variability of PDGFRB Asn666 substitutions 

      Bredrup, Cecilie; Cristea, Ileana; Safieh, Leen Abu; Di Maria, Emilio; Gjertsen, Bjørn Tore; Tveit, Kåre Steinar; Thu, Frode; Bull, Nils; Edward, Deepak P.; Hennekam, Raoul C.; Høvding, Gunnar Jr; Haugen, Olav H.; Houge, Gunnar Douzgos; Rødahl, Eyvind; Bruland, Ove (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Ocular pterygium-digital keloid dysplasia (OPDKD) presents in childhood with ingrowth of vascularized connective tissue on the cornea leading to severely reduced vision. Later the patients develop keloids on digits but are ...
