      Guragain, Prashanna; Sporsheim, Bjørnar; Skjesol, Astrid; Båtnes, Anna Solvang; Olsen, Yngvar; Bones, Atle M.; Winge, Per (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH) is a crucial enzyme involved in tyrosine biosynthesis, having roles in neurological and physiological processes. The purpose of PAH has received little attention in crustaceans despite ...
    • SLAMF1 is required for TLR4-mediated TRAM-TRIF dependent signaling in human macrophages 

      Yurchenko, Mariya; Skjesol, Astrid; Ryan, Liv; Richard, Gabriel Mary; Kandasamy, Richard Kumaran; Wang, Ninghai; Terhorst, Cox; Husebye, Harald; Espevik, Terje (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Signaling lymphocytic activation molecule family 1 (SLAMF1) is an Ig-like receptor and a costimulatory molecule that initiates signal transduction networks in a variety of immune cells. In this study, we report that SLAMF1 ...
    • The TLR4 adaptor TRAM controls the phagocytosis of Gram-negative bacteria by interacting with the Rab11-family interacting protein 2 

      Skjesol, Astrid; Yurchenko, Mariya; Bösl, Korbinian; Gravastrand, Caroline S.; Nilsen, Kaja Elisabeth; Grøvdal, Lene Melsæther; Agliano, Federica; Patane, Francesco; Lentini, Germana; Kim, Hera; Teti, Giuseppe; Sharma, Aditya Kumar; Kandasamy, Richard Kumaran; Sporsheim, Bjørnar; Starheim, Kristian K.; Golenbock, Douglas T.; Stenmark, Harald; McCaffrey, Mary; Espevik, Terje; Husebye, Harald (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Phagocytosis is a complex process that eliminates microbes and is performed by specialised cells such as macrophages. Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) is expressed on the surface of macrophages and recognizes Gram-negative ...
