    • Demyelinating polyneuropathy in goats lacking prion protein 

      Skedsmo, Fredrik Strebel; Malachin, Giulia; Våge, Dag Inge; Hammervold, Mie Marie; Salvesen, Øyvind; Ersdal, Cecilie; Ranheim, Birgit; Stafsnes, Marit Hallvardsdotter; Bartosova, Zdenka; Bruheim, Per; Jäderlund, Karin Hultin; Matiasek, Kaspar; Espenes, Arild; Tranulis, Michael A. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Studies in mice with ablation of Prnp, the gene that encodes the cellular prion protein (PrPC), have led to the hypothesis that PrPC is important for peripheral nerve myelin maintenance. Here, we have used a nontransgenic ...
    • Neil3 induced neurogenesis protects against prion disease during the clinical phase 

      Jalland, Clara Maria Osnes; Scheffler, Katja; Benestad, Sylvie Lafond; Moldal, Torfinn; Ersdal, Cecilie; Gunnes, Gjermund; Suganthan, Rajikala; Bjørås, Magnar; Tranulis, Michael A. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Base excision repair (BER) is the major pathway for repair of oxidative DNA damage. Mice with genetic knockout of the BER enzyme Neil3 display compromised neurogenesis in the sub-ventricular zone of the lateral ventricle ...
    • Stress resilience of spermatozoa and blood mononuclear cells without prion protein 

      Reiten, Malin Rokseth; Malachin, Giulia; Kommisrud, Elisabeth; Østby, Gunn Charlotte; Waterhouse, Karin Elisabeth; Krogenæs, Anette Kristine; Kusnierczyk, Anna; Bjørås, Magnar; Jalland, Clara Maria Osnes; Nekså, Liv Heidi; Røed, Susan Skogtvedt; Stenseth, Else-Berit; Myromslien, Frøydis Deinboll; Zeremichael, Teklu Tewoldebrhan; Bakkebø, Maren Kolltveit; Espenes, Arild; Tranulis, Michael A. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      The cellular prion protein PrPC is highly expressed in neurons, but also present in non-neuronal tissues, including the testicles and spermatozoa. Most immune cells and their bone marrow precursors also express PrPC. ...
