• Five salmon dinners per week were not sufficient to prevent the reduction in serum vitamin D in autumn at 60° north latitude: A randomised trial 

      Bratlie, Marianne; Hagen, Ingrid Valheim; Helland, Anita; Midttun, Øivind; Ulvik, Arve; Rosenlund, Grethe; Sveier, Harald; Mellgren, Gunnar; Ueland, Per Magne; Gudbrandsen, Oddrun Anita (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Low serum concentrations of several vitamins have been linked to increased risk of diseases including insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes (T2D). Fish is a good source of several vitamins, and the prevalence of T2D is ...
    • The Pah-R261Q mouse reveals oxidative stress associated with amyloid-like hepatic aggregation of mutant phenylalanine hydroxylase 

      Aubi Catevilla, Oscar; Prestegård, Karina Skjervheim; K C, Kunwar Jung; Shi, Tie-Jun; Ying, Ming; Grindheim, Ann Kari; Scherer, Tanja; Ulvik, Arve; McCann, Adrian; Spriet, Endy; Thöny, Beat; Martinez, Aurora (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Phenylketonuria (PKU) is caused by autosomal recessive variants in phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH), leading to systemic accumulation of L-phenylalanine (L-Phe) that may reach neurotoxic levels. A homozygous Pah-R261Q mouse, ...
    • Tryptophan catabolites as metabolic markers of vitamin B-6 status evaluated in cohorts of healthy adults and cardiovascular patients 

      Ulvik, Arve; Midttun, Øivind; McCann, Adrian; Meyer, Klaus; Tell, Grethe S.; Nygård, Ottar; Ueland, Per Magne (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Background Vitamin B-6 status is routinely measured as pyridoxal 5′-phosphate (PLP) in plasma. Low concentrations of PLP are associated with rheumatic, cardiovascular, and neoplastic diseases. We have previously shown ...
