• Complex alternative splicing of human Endonuclease V mRNA, but evidence for only a single protein isoform 

      Berges, Natalia; Nawaz, Meh Sameen; Dahl, Tuva Børresdatter; Hagen, Lars; Bjørås, Magnar; Lærdahl, Jon Kristen; Alseth, Ingrun (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Endonuclease V (ENDOV) is a ribonuclease with affinity for inosine which is the deamination product of adenosine. The genomes of most organisms, including human, encode ENDOV homologs, yet knowledge about in vivo functions ...
    • Increased levels of legumain in plasma and plaques from patients with carotid atherosclerosis 

      Lunde, Ngoc Nguyen Dieu; Holm, Sverre; Dahl, Tuva Børresdatter; Inass, Elyouncha; Sporsheim, Bjørnar; Gregersen, Ida; Abbas, Azhar; Skjelland, Mona; Espevik, Terje; Solberg, Rigmor; Johansen, Harald Thidemann; Halvorsen, Bente (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Background and aims The cysteine protease legumain has been shown to be up-regulated in unstable atherosclerotic plaques. This study aims to further elucidate legumain in atherosclerosis, by examining legumain in plasma ...
    • Increased serum levels of LIGHT/TNFSF14 in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease: Possible role in hepatic inflammation 

      Otterdal, Kari; Haukeland, John Willy; Yndestad, Arne; Dahl, Tuva Børresdatter; Holm, Sverre; Segers, Filip; Gladhaug, Ivar Prydz; Zbigniew, Konopski; Damås, Jan Kristian; Halvorsen, Bente; Aukrust, Pål (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      Objectives: The tumor necrosis factor superfamily member 14, LIGHT (homologous to lymphotoxin, exhibits inducible expression, and competes with HSV glycoprotein D for herpes virus entry mediator (HVEM), a receptor expressed ...
    • Interleukin 27 is increased in carotid atherosclerosis and promotes NLRP3 inflammasome activation. 

      Gregersen, Ida; Sandanger, Øystein; Askevold, Erik Tandberg; Sagen, Ellen Lund; Yang, Kuan; Holm, Sverre; Pedersen, Turid Margrethe; Skjelland, Mona; Krohg-Sørensen, Kirsten; Hansen, Trond Vidar; Dahl, Tuva Børresdatter; Otterdal, Kari; Espevik, Terje; Aukrust, Pål; Yndestad, Arne; Halvorsen, Bente (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Aim Interleukin-27 (IL-27) is involved in different inflammatory diseases; however, its role in atherosclerosis is unclear. In this study we investigated the expression of IL-27 and its receptor in patients with carotid ...
    • Neil3-dependent base excision repair regulates lipid metabolism and prevents atherosclerosis in Apoe-deficient mice 

      Skarpengland, Tonje; Holm, Sverre; Scheffler, Katja; Gregersen, Ida; Dahl, Tuva Børresdatter; Suganthan, Rajikala; Segers, Filip; Østlie, Ingunn; Otten, Jeroen J.T.; Gomez, Luisa Fernanda Luna; Ketelhuth, Daniel F.J.; Lundberg, Anna M.; Neurauter, Christine Gran; Hildrestrand, Gunn Annette; Skjelland, Mona; Bjørndal, Bodil; Svardal, Asbjørn M.; Iversen, Per Ole; Hedin, Ulf; Nygård, Ståle; Olstad, Ole Kristoffer; Krohg-Sørensen, Kirsten; Slupphaug, Geir; Eide, Lars; Kusnierczyk, Anna; Folkersen, Lasse; Ueland, Thor; Berge, Rolf Kristian; Hansson, Göran K.; Biessen, Erik A.L.; Halvorsen, Bente; Bjørås, Magnar; Aukrust, Pål (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016)
      Increasing evidence suggests that oxidative DNA damage accumulates in atherosclerosis. Recently, we showed that a genetic variant in the human DNA repair enzyme NEIL3 was associated with increased risk of myocardial ...
