Anabaenolysins, Novel Cytolytic Lipopeptides from Benthic Anabaena Cyanobacteria
(Public Library of Science, 2012-07-19)
Two novel cyclic lipopeptides, anabaenolysin A and anabaenolysin B, were isolated from two benthic cyanobacterial strains of the genus Anabaena. This novel class of cyanobacterial lipopeptides has a general structure of a ...
Glioblastomas are composed of genetically divergent clones with distinct tumourigenic potential and variable stem cell-associated phenotypes
Glioblastoma (GBM) is known to be a heterogeneous disease; however, the genetic composition of the cells within a given tumour is only poorly explored. In the advent of personalised medicine the understanding of intra-tumoural ...
UCP1 induction during recruitment of Brown Adipocytes in White Adipose tissue is dependent on Cyclooxygenase activity
(Public Library of Science, 2010-06-30)
Background The uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1) is a hallmark of brown adipocytes and pivotal for cold- and diet-induced thermogenesis. Methodology/Principal Findings Here we report that cyclooxygenase (COX) activity and ...
A New Method for Isolation of Interstitial Fluid from Human Solid Tumors Applied to Proteomic Analysis of Ovarian Carcinoma Tissue
(Public Library of Science, 2011-04-26)
Major efforts have been invested in the identification of cancer biomarkers in plasma, but the extraordinary dynamic range in protein composition, and the dilution of disease specific proteins make discovery in plasma ...
Cellular responses to metabolic stress. A study on the role of mitochondria in the crosstalk between cell metabolism and survival signaling
(The University of Bergen, 2012-08-31)
<p>Metabolic imbalance is associated with increased risk of several diseases, including cancer. Metabolism affects or is affected by virtually all other cellular processes, which is not surprising considering their ...
Tumor oxygenation - influence on mammary tumor growth, progression and response to chemotherapy
(The University of Bergen, 2011-04-28)
Genome-wide analysis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in Norway
<p>Background Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a highly heritable neuropsychiatric condition, but it has been difficult to identify genes underlying this disorder. This study aimed to explore genetics of ...
Targeting the NG2/CSPG4 Proteoglycan Retards Tumour Growth and Angiogenesis in Preclinical Models of GBM and Melanoma
(PLoS Computational Biology, 2011-07-29)
Aberrant expression of the progenitor marker Neuron-glia 2 (NG2/CSPG4) or melanoma proteoglycan on cancer cells and angiogenic vasculature is associated with an aggressive disease course in several malignancies including ...
The microenvironment in human ovarian carcinoma - characterization through proteomic analysis of tissue interstitial fluid
(The University of Bergen, 2013-10-11)
<p>The interstitial fluid of tissues and that of tumors in particular, represents the secretome and is thus a valuable source of tissue-specific proteins. The differential expression of proteins that are secreted in tumor ...
