      Background PD1/PDL1-directed therapies have been unsuccessful for multiple myeloma (MM), an incurable cancer of plasma cells in the bone marrow (BM). Therefore, other immune checkpoints such as extracellular adenosine and ...
    • Investigating the Role of PRL-3 and Targeting PHGDH in Multiple Myeloma 

      Elsaadi, Samah (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2020:378, Doctoral thesis, 2020)
      Myelomatose er en hematologisk kreftsykdom som skyldes klonal ekspansjon av plasmaceller som infiltrerer beinmargen. Til tross for fremskritt innen behandlingen av myelomatose, er sykdommen fortsatt uhelbredelig. Artiklene ...
    • Phosphatase of regenerating liver 3 (PRL-3) is overexpressed in human prostate cancer tissue and promotes growth and migration 

      Vandsemb, Esten Nymoen; Bertilsson, Helena; Abdollahi, Pegah; Størkersen, Øystein; Våtsveen, Thea Kristin; Rye, Morten Beck; Rø, Torstein Baade; Børset, Magne; Slørdahl, Tobias Schmidt (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Background: PRL-3 is a phosphatase implicated in oncogenesis in multiple cancers. In some cancers, notably carcinomas, PRL-3 is also associated with inferior prognosis and increased metastatic potential. In this study we ...
    • Phosphatase of regenerating liver-3 (PRL-3) is overexpressed in classical Hodgkin lymphoma and promotes survival and migration 

      Hjort, Magnus Aasved; Hov, Håkon; Abdollahi, Pegah; Vandsemb, Esten; Fagerli, Unn-Merete; Lund, Bendik; Slørdahl, Tobias Schmidt; Børset, Magne; Rø, Torstein Baade (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Background Phosphatase of regenerating liver-3 (PRL-3) is implicated in oncogenesis of hematological and solid cancers. PRL-3 expression increases metastatic potential, invasiveness and is associated with poor prognosis. ...
    • Phosphatase of regenerating liver-3 is expressed in acute lymphoblastic leukemia and mediates leukemic cell adhesion, migration and drug resistance 

      Hjort, Magnus Aassved; Abdollahi, Pegah; Vandsemb, Esten Nymoen; Fenstad, Mona H.; Lund, Bendik; Slørdahl, Tobias Schmidt; Børset, Magne; Rø, Torstein Baade (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Phosphatase of regenerating liver-3 (PRL-3/PTP4A3) is upregulated in multiple cancers, including BCR-ABL1- and ETV6-RUNX-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). With this study, we aim to characterize the biological ...
    • Phosphatase of Regenerating Liver-3 Regulates Cancer Cell Metabolism in Multiple Myeloma 

      Abdollahi, Pegah; Vandsemb, Esten; Elsaadi, Samah; Røst, Lisa Marie; Yang, Rui; Hjort, Magnus Aassved; Andreassen, Trygve; Misund, Kristine; Slørdahl, Tobias Schmidt; Rø, Torstein Baade; Sponaas, Anne-Marit; Moestue, Siver Andreas; Bruheim, Per; Børset, Magne (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Cancer cells often depend on microenvironment signals from molecules such as cytokines for proliferation and metabolic adaptations. PRL‐3, a cytokine‐induced oncogenic phosphatase, is highly expressed in multiple myeloma ...
    • PRL-3–a signaling hub in Multiple Myeloma 

      Abdollahi, Pegah (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:131, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
      PRL-3 -en sentral aktør i myelomatsoecellens signalformidling: Myelomatose er en kreftform som oppstår i plasmaceller, den ferdig differensierte formen for B lymfocytter. Et kjennetegn på myelomatose er dens lokalisasjon ...
    • Protein tyrosine phosphatases in multiple myeloma 

      Abdollahi, Pegah; Köhn, Maja; Børset, Magne (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Many cell signaling pathways are activated or deactivated by protein tyrosine phosphorylation and dephosphorylation, catalyzed by protein tyrosine kinases (PTKs) and protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs), respectively. Even ...
    • Src family kinases are regulated in multiple myeloma cells by phosphatase of regenerating liver-3 

      Abdollahi, Pegah; Vandsemb, Esten Nymoen; Hjort, Magnus Aassved; Misund, Kristine; Holien, Toril; Sponaas, Anne-Marit; Rø, Torstein Baade; Slørdahl, Tobias Schmidt; Børset, Magne (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Phosphatase of regenerating liver-3 (PTP4A3/PRL-3) is a dual-specificity phosphatase that is upregulated in various types of cancers and is related to poor prognosis and aggressive tumor behavior. The expression level of ...
