• Markers of mitochondrial metabolism in tumor hypoxia, systemic inflammation, and adverse outcome of rectal cancer 

      Bousquet, Paula; Meltzer, Sebastian; Sønstevold, Linda; Esbensen, Qin Ying; Dueland, Svein; Flatmark, Kjersti; Sitter, Beathe; Bathen, Tone Frost; Seierstad, Therese; Redalen, Kathrine; Eide, Lars; Ree, Anne Hansen (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Tumor hypoxia contributes to therapy resistance and metastatic progression of locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC). We postulated that the tumor mitochondrial metabolism, manifested by reactive oxygen species (ROS) and ...
    • No cancer predisposition or increased spontaneous mutation frequencies in NEIL DNA glycosylases-deficient mice 

      Rolseth, Veslemøy; Luna, Luisa; Olsen, Ann-Karin; Suganthan, Rajikala; Scheffler, Katja; Neurauter, Christine Gran; Esbensen, Qin Ying; Kusnierczyk, Anna; Hildrestrand, Gunn Annette; Graupner, Anne; Andersen, Jill Mari; Slupphaug, Geir; Klungland, Arne; Nilsen, Hilde; Bjørås, Magnar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Base excision repair (BER) is a major pathway for removal of DNA base lesions and maintenance of genomic stability, which is essential in cancer prevention. DNA glycosylases recognize and remove specific lesions in the ...
    • SMUG1 Promotes Telomere Maintenance through Telomerase RNA Processing 

      Kroustallaki, Pinelopi; Lirussi, Lisa; Carracedo, Sergio; You, Panpan; Esbensen, Qin Ying; Götz, Alexandra; Jobert, Laure; Alsøe, Lene; Sætrom, Pål; Gagos, Sarantis; Nilsen, Hilde (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Telomerase biogenesis is a complex process where several steps remain poorly understood. Single-strand-selective uracil-DNA glycosylase (SMUG1) associates with the DKC1-containing H/ACA ribonucleoprotein complex, which is ...
