      Background Reliable methods are needed to identify patients with early-stage cancer or high-grade precancerous lesions in the pancreas. Analysis of pancreatic juice to detect somatic mutations could represent one such ...
    • Pathogenic Carboxyl Ester Lipase (CEL) Variants Interact with the Normal CEL Protein in Pancreatic Cells 

      Valvatne, Monica Dalva; el Jellas, Khadija; Gravdal, Anny; Njølstad, Pål Rasmus; Molven, Anders; Fjeld, Karianne; Lugea, Aurelia; Pandol, Stephen J; Waldron, Richard T; Lavik, Ida; Johansson, Bente B. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
