      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 ...
