• Crude oil exposures reveal roles for intracellular calcium cycling in haddock craniofacial and cardiac development 

      Sørhus, Elin; Incardona, John P.; Karlsen, Ørjan; Linbo, Tiffany; Sørensen, Lisbet; Nordtug, Trond; van der Meeren, Terje; Thorsen, Anders; Thorbjørnsen, Maja; Jentoft, Sissel; Edvardsen, Rolf; Meier, Sonnich (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016-08-10)
      Recent studies have shown that crude oil exposure affects cardiac development in fish by disrupting excitation-contraction (EC) coupling. We previously found that eggs of Atlantic haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus) bind ...
    • Expression and localization of the aryl hydrocarbon receptors and cytochrome P450 1A during early development of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) 

      Aranguren Abadía, Libe; Donald, Carey; Eilertsen, Mariann; Gharbi, Naouel; Tronci, Valentina; Sørhus, Elin; Mayer, Philipp; Nilsen, Tom Ole; Meier, Sonnich; Goksøyr, Anders; Karlsen, Odd Andre (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      The aryl hydrocarbon receptor (Ahr) is a ligand-activated transcription factor that mediates the toxicity of dioxins and dioxin-like compounds (DLCs) in vertebrates. Two clades of the Ahr family exist in teleosts (Ahr1 and ...
    • Oil droplet fouling and differential toxicokinetics of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in embryos of Atlantic haddock and cod 

      Sørensen, Lisbet; Sørhus, Elin; Nordtug, Trond; Incardona, John P.; Linbo, Tiffany; Giovanetti, Laura; Karlsen, Ørjan; Meier, Sonnich (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-07-05)
      The impact of crude oil pollution on early life stages (ELS) of fish, including larvae and embryos, has received considerable attention in recent years. Of the organic components present in crude oil, polycyclic aromatic ...
    • Sex differentiation in Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua L.): morphological and gene expression studies 

      Haugen, Trine; Almeida, Fernanda F. L.; Andersson, Eva; Bogerd, Jan; Male, Rune; Skaar, Katrine Sandnes; Schulz, Rüdiger W.; Sørhus, Elin; Wijgerde, Tim; Taranger, Geir Lasse (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2012-06-18)
      Background: In differentiated gonochoristic species, a bipotential gonad develops into an ovary or testis during sex differentiation. Knowledge about this process is necessary to improve methods for masculinizing genetically ...
    • Vgll3 and the Hippo pathway are regulated in Sertoli cells upon entry and during puberty in Atlantic salmon testis 

      Kjærner-Semb, Erik Nordtorp; Ayllon, Fernando; Kleppe, Lene; Sørhus, Elin; Skaftnesmo, Kai Ove; Furmanek, Tomasz; Segafredo, Frida Thyri; Thorsen, Anders; Fjelldal, Per Gunnar; Hansen, Tom Johnny; Taranger, Geir Lasse; Andersson, Eva; Schulz, Rüdiger W.; Wargelius, Anna; Edvardsen, Rolf (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-01-30)
      Vgll3 is linked to age at maturity in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar). However, the molecular mechanisms involving Vgll3 in controlling timing of puberty as well as relevant tissue and cell types are currently unknown. Vgll3 ...
