• Alkyladenine DNA glycosylase associates with transcription elongation to coordinate DNA repair with gene expression 

      Montaldo, Nicola Pietro; Bordin, Diana Lilian; Brambilla, Alessandro; Rösinger, Marcel; Martin, Sarah Fordyce; Bjørås, Karine Øian; Bradamante, Stefano; Aas, Per Arne; Furrer, Antonia; Olsen, Lene Christin; Kunath, Nicolas; Otterlei, Marit; Sætrom, Pål; Bjørås, Magnar; Samson, Leona D.; van Loon, Barbara (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Base excision repair (BER) initiated by alkyladenine DNA glycosylase (AAG) is essential for removal of aberrantly methylated DNA bases. Genome instability and accumulation of aberrant bases accompany multiple diseases, ...
    • 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 ...
    • Impact of altered Alkyladenine DNA glycosylase expression on hippocampal cytoarchitecture 

      Grooms, Kayla Mae (Master thesis, 2020)
      DNA damage can be caused through exposure to both exogenous and endogenous agents. Through by-products of physiological cellular processes neurons are constantly exposed to agents that can induce DNA base lesions. Base ...
    • Impaired oxidative stress response characterizes HUWE1-promoted X-linked intellectual disability 

      Bosshard, Matthias; Aprigliano, Rossana; Gattiker, Cristina; Palibrk, Vuk; Markkanen, Enni; Backe, Paul Hoff; Pellegrino, Stefania; Raymond, F. Lucy; Froyen, Guy; Altmeyer, Matthias; Bjørås, Magnar; Dianov, Grigory L.; van Loon, Barbara (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Mutations in the HECT, UBA and WWE domain-containing 1 (HUWE1) E3 ubiquitin ligase cause neurodevelopmental disorder X-linked intellectual disability (XLID). HUWE1 regulates essential processes such as genome integrity ...
    • Loss of Mediator complex subunit 13 (MED13) promotes resistance to alkylation through cyclin D1 upregulation 

      Rolinski, Milosz; Montaldo, Nicola Pietro; Aksu, Merdane Ezgi; Martin, Sarah Fordyce; Brambilla, Alessandro; Kunath, Nicolas; Johansen, Jostein; Erlandsen, Sten Even; Liabakk, Nina-Beate; Rian, Kristin; Bjørås, Magnar; Sætrom, Pål; van Loon, Barbara (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Alkylating drugs are among the most often used chemotherapeutics. While cancer cells frequently develop resistance to alkylation treatments, detailed understanding of mechanisms that lead to the resistance is limited. Here, ...
    • Modeling neurodevelopment in 2D and 3D cultures with different DNA glycosylase backgrounds 

      Glesaaen, Emilie Rylund (Master thesis, 2019)
      The brain is under constant attack from exogenous and endogenous sources of DNA damage, and due to the non-proliferative identity of the neuronal cells, a highly functional repair systems need to be in place. One of the ...
    • Relevance of transcription regulator MED13 in response of brain tumour cells to the alkylation therapy 

      Aksu, Merdane Ezgi (Master thesis, 2020)
      Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most frequent and aggressive brain tumour in adults, defined with poor survival, high tumour heterogeneity, and lack of effective treatments. Despite the increasing knowledge in molecular ...
    • Towards modeling of neuronal networks in HUWE1-induced XLID 

      Ask, Torvald Fossåen (Master thesis, 2020)
      Intellektuell forstyrrelse (ID) er en utviklingsforstyrrelse karakterisert av manglende intellektuelle funksjoner og adaptive evner. Denne lidelsen rammer tilnærmet 2% av den vestlige populasjonen. X-koblet ID (XLID) er ...
