Expression and effects of IL-1 and TNF-α in different experimental models of dental inflammation
(The University of Bergen, 2006-07-04)
Phospholipase D in human blood platelets
(The University of Bergen, 2008-05-30)
We have studied phospholipase D (PLD) in human blood platelets. This enzyme hydrolyzes phosphatidylcholine to phosphatidic acid (PA) and choline, where PA is considered to be the main effector of PLDs function in cells. ...
Studies on viral gene transfer and angiogenesis inhibition in experimental glioma models
(The University of Bergen, 2006-11-03)
The Peripheral Binding of 14-3-3γ to Membranes Involves Isoform-Specific Histidine Residues
(Public Library of Science, 2012-11-26)
Mammalian 14-3-3 protein scaffolds include seven conserved isoforms that bind numerous phosphorylated protein partners and regulate many cellular processes. Some 14-3-3-isoforms, notably γ, have elevated affinity for ...
Autoimmune Addison's Disease and DNA Methylation. Identification of Differentially Methylated Regions and Development of Methylation Specific PCR for Selected Genes
(The University of Bergen, 2012-07-01)
Autoimmune Addison's Disease (AAD) is a classical organ-specific autoimmune disease (AID) that is characterized by autoreactivity towards the adrenal cortex, leading to insufficient production of steroid hormones and ...
Cognitive and psychosocial problems in children with epilepsy : a population-based approach
(The University of Bergen, 2007-01-12)
The apoptosis-inducing activity towards leukemia and lymphoma cells in a cyanobacterial culture collection is not associated with mouse bioassay toxicity
Cyanobacteria (83 strains and seven natural populations) were screened for content of apoptosis (cell death)-inducing activity towards neoplastic cells of the immune (jurkat acute T-cell lymphoma) and hematopoetic (acute ...
Camptothecin and khat (Catha edulis Forsk.) induced distinct cell death phenotypes involving modulation of c-FLIPL, Mcl-1, procaspase-8 and mitochondrial function in acute myeloid leukemia cell lines
(BioMed Central, 2009-11-13)
Background: An organic extract of the recreational herb khat (Catha edulis Forsk.) triggers cell death in various leukemia cell lines in vitro. The chemotherapeutics camptothecin, a plant alkaloid topoisomerase I inhibitor, ...
Semaphorin 3A and Class 4 Semaphorins in Tooth Innervation and Development
(The University of Bergen, 2014-10-10)
<p>Background: Dental trigeminal axon elongation, navigation and patterning occur in a controlled manner that is intimately linked to tooth shape formation and cell differentiation. Development of tooth results from ...
Correlations between measures of executive attention and cortical thickness of left posterior middle frontal gyrus - a dichotic listening study
(BioMed Central, 2009-10-01)
<p>Background: The frontal lobe has been associated to a wide range of cognitive control functions and is also vulnerable to degeneration in old age. A recent study by Thomsen and colleagues showed a difference between ...
