• Accuracy and efficiency of germline variant calling pipelines for human genome data 

      Zhao, Sen; Agafonov, Oleg; Azab, Abdulrahman; Stokowy, Tomasz; Hovig, Eivind (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Advances in next-generation sequencing technology have enabled whole genome sequencing (WGS) to be widely used for identification of causal variants in a spectrum of genetic-related disorders, and provided new insight into ...
    • Cross talk between cytokine and hyperthermia-induced pathways: identification of different subsets of NF-κB-dependent genes regulated by TNFα and heat shock 

      Janus, Patryk; Stokowy, Tomasz; Jaksik, Roman; Szoltysek, Katarzyna; Handschuh, Luiza; Podkowinski, Jan; Widlak, Wieslawa; Kimmel, Marek; Widlak, Piotr (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015-05-06)
      Heat shock inhibits NF-κB signaling, yet the knowledge about its influence on the regulation of NF-κB-dependent genes is limited. Using genomic approaches, i.e., expression microarrays and ChIP-Seq, we aimed to establish ...
    • Crosstalk between HSF1 and HSF2 during the heat shock response in mouse testes 

      Korfanty, Joanna; Stokowy, Tomasz; Widlak, Piotr; Gogler-Piglowska, Agnieszka; Handschuh, Luiza; Podkowinski, Jan; Vydra, Natalia; Naumowicz, Anna; Toma-Jonik, Agnieszka; Widlak, Wieslawa (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-12)
      Heat Shock Factor 1 (HSF1) is the primary transcription factor responsible for the response to cellularstress, while HSF2 becomes activated during development and differentiation, including spermatogen-esis. Although both ...
    • Genetic variation in 117 myelination-related genes in schizophrenia: Replication of association to lipid biosynthesis genes 

      Stokowy, Tomasz; Polushina, Tatiana; Sønderby, Ida Elken; Karlsson, Robert; Giddaluru, Sudheer; Le Hellard, Stephanie; Bergen, Sarah E; Sullivan, Patrick F; Andreassen, Ole Andreas; Djurovic, Srdjan; Hultman, Christina M.; Steen, Vidar Martin (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-05-02)
      Schizophrenia is a serious psychotic disorder with high heritability. Several common genetic variants, rare copy number variants and ultra-rare gene-disrupting mutations have been linked to disease susceptibility, but there ...
    • Genetic variation in metronidazole metabolism and oxidative stress pathways in clinical giardia lamblia assemblage A and B isolates 

      Saghaug, Christina Skår; Klotz, Christian; Kallio, Juha Pekka; Brattbakk, Hans-Richard; Stokowy, Tomasz; Aebischer, Toni; Kursula, Inari; Langeland, Nina; Hanevik, Kurt (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-05-10)
      Purpose: Treatment-refractory Giardia cases have increased rapidly within the last decade. No markers of resistance nor a standardized susceptibility test have been established yet, but several enzymes and their pathways ...
    • Predictive value of angiogenic proteins in patients with metastatic melanoma treated with bevacizumab monotherapy 

      Schuster, Cornelia; Akslen, Lars A.; Stokowy, Tomasz; Straume, Oddbjørn (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      The incidence of malignant melanoma is rising worldwide and survival for metastatic disease is still poor. Recently, new treatment options have become available. Still, predictive biomarkers are needed to optimise treatment ...
    • Proteome and Phosphoproteome Changes Associated with Prognosis in Acute Myeloid Leukemia 

      Aasebø, Elise; Berven, Frode; Bartaula-Brevik, Sushma; Stokowy, Tomasz; Hovland, Randi; Vaudel, Marc; Døskeland, Stein Ove; Mc Cormack, Emmet; Batth, Tanveer S; Olsen, Jesper V; Bruserud, Øystein; Selheim, Frode; Hernandez-Valladares, Maria (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a hematological cancer that mainly affects the elderly. Although complete remission (CR) is achieved for the majority of the patients after induction and consolidation therapies, nearly ...
    • The role of NF-κB transcription factor in cellular response to ionizing radiation 

      Janus, Patryk; Szoltysek, Katarzyna; Zajac, Gracjana; Widlak, Wieslawa; Stokowy, Tomasz; Wojtas, Bartosz; Widlak, Piotr (Journal article, 2019)
      The NF-κB transcription factor is involved in different aspects of the cellular response to stress, including atypical NF-κB pathway activated by damage induced by ionizing radiation. Moreover, NF-κB could be involved in ...
