      Fusser, Markus; Øverbye, Anders; Pandya, Abhilash D.; Mørch, Ýrr Asbjørg; Borgos, Sven Even F.; Kildal, Wanja; Snipstad, Sofie; Sulheim, Einar; Fleten, Karianne Giller; Askautrud, Hanne Arenberg; Engebraaten, Olav; Flatmark, Kjersti; Iversen, Tore Geir; Sandvig, Kirsten; Skotland, Tore; Mælandsmo, Gunhild Mari (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      The effect of poly(2-ethyl-butyl cyanoacrylate) nanoparticles containing the cytotoxic drug cabazitaxel was studied in three breast cancer cell lines and one basal-like patient-derived xenograft model grown in the mammary ...
    • The expression of the long NEAT1_2 isoform is associated with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-positive breast cancers 

      Knutsen, Erik; Lellahi, Seyed Mohammad; Aure, Miriam Ragle; Nord, Silje; Fismen, Silje; Larsen, Kenneth Bowitz; Tellez Gabriel, Marta; Hedberg, Annica; Bjørklund, Sunniva; Bofin, Anna M.; Mælandsmo, Gunhild Mari; Sørlie, Therese; Mortensen, Elin Synnøve; Perander, Maria (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      The long non-coding RNA NEAT1 locus is transcribed into two overlapping isoforms, NEAT1_1 and NEAT1_2, of which the latter is essential for the assembly of nuclear paraspeckles. NEAT1 is abnormally expressed in a wide ...
    • Glutamine to proline conversion is associated with response to glutaminase inhibition in breast cancer 

      Grinde, Maria Tunset; Hilmarsdòttir, Bylgja; Tunset, Hanna Maja; Henriksen, Ida Marie; Kim, Jana; Haugen, Mads Haugland; Rye, Morten Beck; Mælandsmo, Gunhild Mari; Moestue, Siver Andreas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Introduction Glutaminase inhibitors target cancer cells by blocking the conversion of glutamine to glutamate, thereby potentially interfering with anaplerosis and synthesis of amino acids and glutathione. The drug CB-839 ...
    • O-GlcNAc Transferase Inhibition Differentially Affects Breast Cancer Subtypes 

      Barkovskaya, Anna; Seip, Kotryna; Hilmarsdòttir, Bylgja; Mælandsmo, Gunhild Mari; Moestue, Siver Andreas; Itkonen, Harri (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Post-translational modification of intracellular proteins with a single N-acetylglucosamine sugar (O-GlcNAcylation) regulates signaling, proliferation, metabolism and protein stability. In breast cancer, expression of the ...
    • Serum levels of inflammation-related markers and metabolites predict response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy with and without bevacizumab in breast cancers 

      Nome, Marianne Eikhom; Euceda, Leslie R.; Jabeen, Shakila; Debik, Julia; Bathen, Tone Frost; Giskeødegård, Guro F.; Tasken, Kristin Austlid; Mælandsmo, Gunhild Mari; Halvorsen, Bente; Yndestad, Arne; Borgen, Elin; Garred, Øystein; Aukrust, Pål; Ueland, Thor; Engebraaten, Olav; Kristensen, Vessela N.; Tekpli, Xavier (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Angiogenesis is necessary for tumor growth and has been targeted in breast cancer; however, it is unclear which patients will respond and benefit from antiangiogenic therapy. We report noninvasive monitoring of patient ...
