• Alkyladenine DNA glycosylase associates with transcription elongation to coordinate DNA repair with gene expression 

      Montaldo, Nicola Pietro; Bordin, Diana Lilian; Brambilla, Alessandro; Rösinger, Marcel; Martin, Sarah Fordyce; Bjørås, Karine Øian; Bradamante, Stefano; Aas, Per Arne; Furrer, Antonia; Olsen, Lene Christin; Kunath, Nicolas; Otterlei, Marit; Sætrom, Pål; Bjørås, Magnar; Samson, Leona D.; van Loon, Barbara (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Base excision repair (BER) initiated by alkyladenine DNA glycosylase (AAG) is essential for removal of aberrantly methylated DNA bases. Genome instability and accumulation of aberrant bases accompany multiple diseases, ...
    • DNA repair enzyme NEIL3 enables a stable neural representation of space by shaping transcription in hippocampal neurons 

      Kunath, Nicolas; Bugaj, Anna Maria; Bigonah, Pegah; Fernandez Berrocal, Marion Silvana; Bjørås, Magnar; Ye, Jing (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      DNA repair enzymes are essential for the maintenance of the neuronal genome and thereby proper brain functions. Emerging evidence links DNA repair to epigenetic gene regulation; however, its contribution to different ...
    • The impact of the DNA glycosylase NEIL3 on neural coding of spatial learning and memory 

      Kunath, Nicolas (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2021:1, Doctoral thesis, 2021)
    • Loss of Mediator complex subunit 13 (MED13) promotes resistance to alkylation through cyclin D1 upregulation 

      Rolinski, Milosz; Montaldo, Nicola Pietro; Aksu, Merdane Ezgi; Martin, Sarah Fordyce; Brambilla, Alessandro; Kunath, Nicolas; Johansen, Jostein; Erlandsen, Sten Even; Liabakk, Nina-Beate; Rian, Kristin; Bjørås, Magnar; Sætrom, Pål; van Loon, Barbara (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Alkylating drugs are among the most often used chemotherapeutics. While cancer cells frequently develop resistance to alkylation treatments, detailed understanding of mechanisms that lead to the resistance is limited. Here, ...
    • NEIL1 and NEIL2 DNA glycosylases modulate anxiety and learning in a cooperative manner in mice 

      Hildrestrand, Gunn Annette; Rolseth, Veslemøy; Kunath, Nicolas; Suganthan, Rajikala; Jensen, Vidar; Bugaj, Anna Maria; Fernandez Berrocal, Marion Silvana; SIkko, Sunniva Bøe; Vetlesen, Susanne; Kusnierczyk, Anna; Olsen, Ann-Karin Hardie; Gutzkow, Kristine Bjerve; Rowe, Alexander D.; Wang, Wei; Moldestad, Olve; Syrstad, Monika; Slupphaug, Geir; Eide, Lars; Klungland, Arne; Sætrom, Pål; Luna, Luisa; Ye, Jing; Scheffler, Katja; Bjørås, Magnar (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Oxidative DNA damage in the brain has been implicated in neurodegeneration and cognitive decline. DNA glycosylases initiate base excision repair (BER), the main pathway for oxidative DNA base lesion repair. NEIL1 and NEIL3 ...
    • Parp3 promotes astrocytic differentiation through a tight regulation of Nox4-induced ROS and mTorc2 activation 

      Rodriguez-Vargas, José-Manuel; Martin-Hernandez, Kathline; Wang, Wei; Kunath, Nicolas; Suganthan, Rajikala; Amé, Jean-Christophe; Francisco, Javier Oliver Pozo; Ye, Jing; Bjørås, Magnar; Dantzer, Françoise (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Parp3 is a member of the Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (Parp) family that has been characterized for its functions in strand break repair, chromosomal rearrangements, mitotic segregation and tumor aggressiveness. Yet its ...
