  • Gene expression in the rat brain: High similarity but unique differences between frontomedial-, temporal- and occipital cortex 

    Stansberg, Christine; Ersland, Kari Merete; Valk, Paul van der; Steen, Vidar Martin (BioMed Central, 2011-01-26)
    Background: The six-layered neocortex of the mammalian brain may appear largely homologous, but is in reality a modular structure of anatomically and functionally distinct areas. However, global gene expression seems to ...

  • Gene expression profiles in rat brain disclose CNS signature genes and regional patterns of functional specialisation 

    Stansberg, Christine; Vik-Mo, Audun O.; Holdhus, Rita; Breilid, Harald; Srebro, Boleslaw; Petersen, Kjell; Jørgensen, Hugo A.; Jonassen, Inge; Steen, Vidar Martin (BioMed Central, 2007-04-04)
    Background: The mammalian brain is divided into distinct regions with structural and neurophysiological differences. As a result, gene expression is likely to vary between regions in relation to their cellular composition ...

  • Gene-Based Analysis of Regionally Enriched Cortical Genes in GWAS Data Sets of Cognitive Traits and Psychiatric Disorders 

    Ersland, Kari Merete; Christoforou, Andrea; Stansberg, Christine; Espeseth, Thomas; Mattheisen, Manuel; Mattingsdal, Morten; Hardarson, Gudmundur A.; Hansen, Thomas; Fernandes, Carla P. D.; Giddaluru, Sudheer; Breuer, René; Strohmaier, Jana; Djurovic, Srdjan; Nöthen, Markus M.; Rietschel, Marcella; Lundervold, Astri Johansen; Werge, Thomas; Cichon, Sven; Andreassen, Ole Andreas; Reinvang, Ivar; Steen, Vidar Martin; Le Hellard, Stephanie (PLoS, 2012-02-22)
    Background: Despite its estimated high heritability, the genetic architecture leading to differences in cognitive performance remains poorly understood. Different cortical regions play important roles in normal cognitive ...

  • Hyperoxia retards growth and induces apoptosis and loss of glands and blood vessels in DMBA-induced rat mammary tumors 

    Raa, Anette; Stansberg, Christine; Steen, Vidar Martin; Bjerkvig, Rolf; Reed, Rolf K.; Stuhr, Linda Elin Birkhaug (BioMed Central, 2007-01-30)
    This study investigated the effects of hyperoxic treatment on growth, angiogenesis, apoptosis, general morphology and gene expression in DMBA-induced rat mammary tumors. Methods: One group of animals was exposed to ...

  • LOC689986, a unique gene showing specific expression in restricted areas of the rodent neocortex 

    Ersland, Kari Merete; Håvik, Bjarte; Rinholm, Johanne Egge; Gundersen, Vidar; Stansberg, Christine; Steen, Vidar Martin (BioMed Central, 2013-07-11)
    Background: The neocortex is a highly specialised and complex brain structure, involved in numerous tasks, ranging from processing and interpretation of somatosensory information, to control of motor functions. The normal ...

  • Switch from stress response to homeobox transcription factors in Adipose tissue after profound fat loss 

    Dankel, Simon N.; Fadnes, Dag J.; Stavrum, Anne-Kristin; Stansberg, Christine; Holdhus, Rita; Hoang, Tuyen Thi Van; Veum, Vivian L.; Christensen, Bjørn Jostein; Våge, Villy; Sagen, Jørn V.; Steen, Vidar Martin; Mellgren, Gunnar (Public Library of Science, 2010-06-09)
    Background In obesity, impaired adipose tissue function may promote secondary disease through ectopic lipid accumulation and excess release of adipokines, resulting in systemic low-grade inflammation, insulin resistance ...
