• Common gene expression signatures in Parkinson’s disease are driven by changes in cell composition 

      Sanchez Nido, Gonzalo; Dick, Fiona; Toker, Lilah; Petersen, Kjell; Alves, Guido Werner; Tysnes, Ole-Bjørn; Jonassen, Inge; Haugarvoll, Kristoffer; Tzoulis, Charalampos (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020-04-21)
      The etiology of Parkinson’s disease is largely unknown. Genome-wide transcriptomic studies in bulk brain tissue have identified several molecular signatures associated with the disease. While these studies have the potential ...
    • Defective mitochondrial DNA homeostasis in the substantia nigra in Parkinson disease 

      Dölle, Christian; Flønes, Irene Hana; Sanchez Nido, Gonzalo; Miletic, Hrvoje; Osuagwu, Nelson; Kristoffersen, Stine; Lilleng, Peer Kåre; Larsen, Jan Petter; Tysnes, Ole-Bjørn; Haugarvoll, Kristoffer; Bindoff, Laurence; Tzoulis, Charalampos (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016-11-22)
      Increased somatic mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) mutagenesis causes premature aging in mice, and mtDNA damage accumulates in the human brain with aging and neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson disease (PD). Here, we ...
    • Differential transcript usage in the Parkinson’s disease brain 

      Dick, Fiona; Sanchez Nido, Gonzalo; Alves, Guido Werner; Tysnes, Ole-Bjørn; Nilsen, Gry Hilde; Dölle, Christian; Tzoulis, Charalampos (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Studies of differential gene expression have identified several molecular signatures and pathways associated with Parkinson’s disease (PD). The role of isoform switches and differential transcript usage (DTU) remains, ...
    • Meta-analysis of whole-exome sequencing data from two independent cohorts finds no evidence for rare variant enrichment in Parkinson disease associated loci 

      Gaare, Johannes Jernqvist; Sanchez Nido, Gonzalo; Dölle, Christian; Sztromwasser, Pawel Szymon; Alves, Guido Werner; Tysnes, Ole-Bjørn; Haugarvoll, Kristoffer; Tzoulis, Charalampos (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020-10-01)
      Parkinson disease (PD) is a complex neurodegenerative disorder influenced by both environmental and genetic factors. While genome wide association studies have identified several susceptibility loci, many causal variants ...
    • Using urine to diagnose large-scale mtDNA deletions in adult patients 

      Varhaug, Kristin Nielsen; Sanchez Nido, Gonzalo; de Coo, Irenaeus; Isohanni, Pirjo; Suomalainen, Anu; Tzoulis, Charalampos; Knappskog, Per; Bindoff, Laurence (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate if urinary sediment cells offered a robust alternative to muscle biopsy for the diagnosis of single mtDNA deletions. Methods: Eleven adult patients with progressive ...
