• Characterization of FGD5 expression in primary breast cancers and lymph node metastases 

      Valla, Marit; Mjønes, Patricia; Engstrøm, Monica J; Ytterhus, Borgny; Bordin, Diana Lilian; van Loon, Barbara; Akslen, Lars A.; Vatten, Lars Johan; Opdahl, Signe; Bofin, Anna M. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Faciogenital dysplasia 5 (FGD5) amplification drives tumor cell proliferation, and is present in 9.5% of breast cancers. We describe FGD5 expression, assess associations between FGD5 amplification and FGD5 expression, and ...
    • Expression and clinical value of EGFR in human meningiomas 

      Arnli, Magnus B.; Backer-Grøndahl, Thomas; Ytterhus, Borgny; Granli, Unn S.; Lydersen, Stian; Gulati, Sasha; Torp, Sverre Helge (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Background Meningiomas are common intracranial tumors in humans that frequently recur despite having a predominantly benign nature. Even though these tumors have been shown to commonly express EGFR/c-erbB1 (epidermal ...
    • FGD5 amplification in breast cancer patients is associated with tumor proliferation and a poorer prognosis 

      Valla, Marit; Engstrøm, Monica J; Ytterhus, Borgny; Hansen, Åse Kristin Skain; Akslen, Lars A.; Vatten, Lars Johan; Opdahl, Signe; Bofin, Anna M. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Purpose Proliferation is a hallmark of cancer. Using a combined genomic approach, FGD5 amplification has been identified as a driver of proliferation in Luminal breast cancer. We aimed to describe FGD5 copy number change ...
    • Molecular Subtypes of Breast Cancer: Long-term Incidence Trends and Prognostic Differences 

      Valla, Marit; Vatten, Lars Johan; Engstrøm, Monica J; Haugen, Olav Anton; Akslen, Lars A.; Bjørngaard, Johan Håkon; Hagen, Anne Irene; Ytterhus, Borgny; Bofin, Anna M.; Opdahl, Signe (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Background: Secular trends in incidence and prognosis of molecular breast cancer subtypes are poorly described. We studied long-term trends in a population of Norwegian women born 1886–1977. Methods: A total of 52,949 ...
    • MRPS23 amplification and gene expression in breast cancer; association with proliferation and the non-basal subtypes 

      Klæstad, Elise; Opdahl, Signe; Engstrøm, Monica J; Ytterhus, Borgny; Wik, Elisabeth; Bofin, Anna Mary; Valla, Marit (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Purpose MRPS23 is recognized as a driver of proliferation in luminal breast cancer. The aims of the present study were to describe MRPS23 copy number change in breast cancer, and to assess associations between MRPS23 ...
    • TOP2A gene copy number change in breast cancer 

      Engstrøm, Monica J; Ytterhus, Borgny; Vatten, Lars Johan; Opdahl, Signe; Bofin, Anna M. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014)
      Aims The clinical significance of TOP2A as a prognostic marker has not been clarified. The aims of this study were to investigate the frequency of TOP2A copy number change; to correlate TOP2A with HER2 status, hormone ...
