      An inflammatory response is required for tissue healing after a myocardial infarction (MI), but the process must be balanced to prevent maladaptive remodeling. This study shows that improved survival and cardiac function ...

      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 ...

      Kong, Xiang Yi; Huse, Camilla; Yang, Kuan; Øgaard, Jonas; Jimenez, Natalia Berges; Vik, Erik Sebastian; Nawaz, Meh Sameen; Quiles-Jiménez, Ana M T; Abbas, Azhar; Gregersen, Ida; Holm, Sverre; Bjerkli, Vigdis; Rashidi, Azita; Fladeby, Cathrine; Suganthan, Rajikala; Sagen, Ellen Lund; Skjelland, Mona; Lång, Anna; Bøe, Stig Ove; Bjørås, Magnar; Aukrust, Pål; Alseth, Ingrun; Halvorsen, Bente; Dahl, Tuva Børresdatter (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Background In cardiovascular diseases, atherosclerotic disorder are the most frequent and important with respect to morbidity and mortality. Inflammation mediated by immune cells is central in all parts of the atherosclerotic ...
    • Interleukin 27 is increased in carotid atherosclerosis and promotes NLRP3 inflammasome activation. 

      Gregersen, Ida; Sandanger, Øystein; Askevold, Erik Tandberg; Sagen, Ellen Lund; Yang, Kuan; Holm, Sverre; Pedersen, Turid Margrethe; Skjelland, Mona; Krohg-Sørensen, Kirsten; Hansen, Trond Vidar; Dahl, Tuva Børresdatter; Otterdal, Kari; Espevik, Terje; Aukrust, Pål; Yndestad, Arne; Halvorsen, Bente (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Aim Interleukin-27 (IL-27) is involved in different inflammatory diseases; however, its role in atherosclerosis is unclear. In this study we investigated the expression of IL-27 and its receptor in patients with carotid ...
    • 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 ...
