  • 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 ...
  • CDR2 antigen and Yo antibodies 

    Totland, Cecilie; Aarskog, Nina K.; Eichler, Tilo W.; Haugen, Mette; Nøstbakken, Jane K.; Monstad, Sissel E.; Salvesen, Helga B.; Mørk, Sverre; Haukanes, Bjørn Ivar; Vedeler, Christian A. (2011)
    Paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration (PCD) is often associated with Yo antibodies that are directed against human cerebellar degeneration-related protein 2 (CDR2). Such antibodies may also be found in ovarian cancer ...
  • Current clinical criteria for Lynch syndrome are not sensitive enough to identify MSH6 mutation carriers 

    Sjursen, Wenche; Haukanes, Bjørn Ivar; Grindedal, Eli Marie; Aarset, Harald; Stormorken, Astrid Tenden; Engebretsen, Lars Fredrik; Jonsrud, Christoffer; Bjørnevoll, Inga; Andresen, Per Arne; Ariansen, Sarah; Lavik, Liss Anne S.; Gilde, Bodil; Bowitz-Lothe, Inger Marie; Mæhle, Lovise; Møller, Pål (BMJ Publishing Group, 2010-09)
    Background: Reported prevalence, penetrance and expression of deleterious mutations in the mismatch repair (MMR) genes, MLH1, MSH2, MSH6 and PMS2, may reflect differences in the clinical criteria used to select families ...
  • Extra-colonic cancers in Lynch Syndrome 

    Grindedal, Eli Marie (The University of Bergen, 2010-11-12)
    Lynch Syndrome (LS) is the most common of the hereditary colorectal cancer (CRC) syndromes. It is caused by germ-line mutations in one of the four mismatch repair (MMR) genes MLHl, MSH2, MSH6 or PMS2. Mutations in one of ...
