      Background and aims Atherogenesis involves a complex interaction between immune cells and lipids, processes greatly influenced by the vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) phenotype. The DNA glycosylase NEIL3 has previously ...
    • NEIL3-deficiency increases gut permeability and contributes to a pro-atherogenic metabolic phenotype 

      Karlsen, Tom Rune; Kong, Xiang Yi; Holm, Sverre; Quiles-Jiménez, Ana M T; Dahl, Tuva Børresdatter; Yang, Kuan; Sagen, Ellen Lund; Skarpengland, Tonje; Øgaard, Jonas; Holm, Kristian; Vestad, Beate; Olsen, Maria Belland; Aukrust, Pål; Bjørås, Magnar; Hov, Johannes Espolin Roksund; Halvorsen, Bente; Gregersen, Ida (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Atherosclerosis and its consequences cause considerable morbidity and mortality world-wide. We have previously shown that expression of the DNA glycosylase NEIL3 is regulated in human atherosclerotic plaques, and that ...
    • Neil3-dependent base excision repair regulates lipid metabolism and prevents atherosclerosis in Apoe-deficient mice

      Increasing evidence suggests that oxidative DNA damage accumulates in atherosclerosis. Recently, we showed that a genetic variant in the human DNA repair enzyme NEIL3 was associated with increased risk of myocardial ...
