      Gansmo, Liv Beathe; Bjørnslett, Merete Pauline; Halle, Mari Kyllesø; Salvesen, Helga; Romundstad, Pål Richard; Hveem, Kristian; Vatten, Lars Johan; Dørum, Anne; Lønning, Per Eystein; Knappskog, Stian (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Background The del1518 (rs3730485) polymorphism is an in/del variant in the MDM2 promoter P1. The variant is in complete linkage disequilibrium with MDM2 SNP309 (rs2279744) and has previously been found associated with ...
    • MDM2 Promoter SNP344T>A (rs1196333) Status Does Not Affect Cancer Risk 

      Knappskog, Stian; Gansmo, Liv Beathe; Romundstad, Pål Richard; Bjørnslett, Merete Pauline; Trovik, Jone; Sommerfelt-Pettersen, Jan; Løkkevik, Erik; Tollenaar, Rob A.E.M.; Seynaeve, Caroline; Devilee, Peter; Salvesen, Helga Birgitte; Dørum, Anne; Hveem, Kristian; Vatten, Lars Johan; Lønning, Per Eystein (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      The MDM2 proto-oncogene plays a key role in central cellular processes like growth control and apoptosis, and the gene locus is frequently amplified in sarcomas. Two polymorphisms located in the MDM2 promoter P2 have been ...
    • The MDM4 SNP34091 (rs4245739) C-allele is associated with increased risk of ovarian—but not endometrial cancer 

      Lønning, Per Eystein; Gansmo, Liv Beathe; Salvesen, Helga; Romundstad, Pål Richard; Birkeland, Einar Elvbakken; Bjørnslett, Merete Pauline; Halle, Mari Kyllesø; Dørum, Anne; Hveem, Kristian; Knappskog, Stian; Vatten, Lars Johan (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      The MDM4 protein (also known as MDMX or HDMX) is a negative regulator of p53, not only by direct interaction but also through its interaction with MDM2. Further, MDM4 overexpression and amplification have been observed in ...
