• Base excision repair causes age-dependent accumulation of single-stranded DNA breaks that contribute to Parkinson disease pathology 

      SenGupta, Tanima; Palikaras, Konstantinos; Esbensen, Ying Q.; Konstantinidis, Georgios; Galindo, Francisco Jose Naranjo; Achanta, Kavya; Kassahun, Henok; Stavgiannoudaki, Ioanna; Bohr, Vilhelm A.; Akbari, Mansour; Gaare, Johannes; Tzoulis, Charalampos; Tavernarakis, Nektarios; Nilsen, Hilde (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Aging, genomic stress, and mitochondrial dysfunction are risk factors for neurodegenerative pathologies, such as Parkinson disease (PD). Although genomic instability is associated with aging and mitochondrial impairment, ...
    • NvPOU4/Brain3 Functions as a Terminal Selector Gene in the Nervous System of the Cnidarian Nematostella vectensis 

      Tourniere, Oceane Barbara; Dolan, David William Peter; Richards, Gemma Sian; Sunagar, Kartik; Columbus-Shenkar, Yaara Y; Moran, Yehu; Rentzsch, Fabian (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020-03)
      Terminal selectors are transcription factors that control the morphological, physiological, and molecular features that characterize distinct cell types. Here, we show that, in the sea anemone Nematostella vectensis, NvPOU4 ...
    • OXR1A, a Coactivator of PRMT5 Regulating Histone Arginine Methylation 

      Yang, Mingyi; Lin, Xiaolin; Segers, Filip; Suganthan, Rajikala; Hildrestrand, Gunn Annette; Rinholm, Johanne Egge; Aas, Per Arne; Sousa, Mirta; Holm, Sverre; Bolstad, Nils; Warren, David; Berge, Rolf Kristian; Johansen, Rune Forstrøm; Yndestad, Arne; Kristiansen, Elise; Klungland, Arne; Gomez, Luisa Fernanda Luna; Eide, Lars; Halvorsen, Bente; Aukrust, Pål; Bjørås, Magnar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Oxidation resistance gene 1 (OXR1) protects cells against oxidative stress. We find that male mice with brain-specific isoform A knockout (Oxr1A−/−) develop fatty liver. RNA sequencing of male Oxr1A−/− liver indicates ...
    • Tumor-Derived Lactic Acid Contributes to the Paucity of Intratumoral ILC2s 

      Wagner, Marek; Ealey, Kafi N; Tetsu, Hiroe; Kiniwa, Tsuyoshi; Motomura, Yasutaka; Moro, Kazuyo; Koyasu, Shigeo (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Group 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2s) are abundant in non-lymphoid tissues and increase following infectious and inflammatory insults. In solid tumors, however, ILC2s constitute a relatively small proportion of immune ...
