      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 ...
    • RNA metabolism guided by RNA modifications: The role of SMUG1 in rRNA quality control 

      Lirussi, Lisa; Demir, Özlem; You, Panpan; Sarno, Antonio; Amaro, Rommie E.; Nilsen, Hilde (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      RNA modifications are essential for proper RNA processing, quality control, and maturation steps. In the last decade, some eukaryotic DNA repair enzymes have been shown to have an ability to recognize and process modified ...
    • 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 ...
