What Happened in Northern Norway? - A comparative and quantitative analysis of political and demographic development in Northern Norway from 1950 to 2015

  • Prevalence of antibodies against Brucella spp. in West Greenland polar bears (Ursus maritimus) and East Greenland muskoxen (Ovibos moschatus)

    Zoonotic infections transmitted from terrestrial and marine mammals to humans in European Arctic are of unknown significance, despite considerable potential for transmission due to local hunt and a rapidly changing environment. As an example, infection with <i>Brucella</i> bacteria may have significant impact on human health due to consumption of raw meat or otherwise contact with tissues and fluids ...
  • Is coexistence mediated by microhabitat segregation? An in-depth exploration of a fish invasion 

    Gjelland, Karl Øystein; Bøhn, Thomas; Amundsen, Per-Arne (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2007)
    Vendace <i>Coregonus albula</i> has invaded the subarctic Pasvik hydrosystem, northern Norway and Russia, after being translocated from its native Finnish range into Lake Inari (Finland), upstream of Pasvik. The development of the invader and the effects on two native lake communities in the upstream and downstream part of the hydrosystem, respectively, have been monitored since 1991. In the upstream ...
  • Low expression levels of ATM may substitute for CHEK2/TP53 mutations predicting resistance towards anthracycline and mitomycin chemotherapy in breast cancer 

    Knappskog, Stian; Chrisanthar, Ranjan; Løkkevik, Erik; Anker, Gun Birgitta; Østenstad, Bjørn; Lundgren, Steinar; Risberg, Terje; Mjaaland, Ingvil; Leirvaag, Beryl; Miletic, Hrvoje; Lønning, Per Eystein (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012-03-15)
    <i>Introduction</i>: Mutations affecting p53 or its upstream activator Chk2 are associated with resistance to DNA-damaging chemotherapy in breast cancer. ATM (Ataxia Telangiectasia Mutated protein) is the key activator of p53 and Chk2 in response to genotoxic stress. Here, we sought to evaluate ATM's potential role in resistance to chemotherapy.<p> <p><i>Methods</i>: We sequenced <i>ATM</i> and ...
  • What influences tourists' overall holiday experience? Tourism company products versus destination products 

    Mehmetoglu, Mehmet; Normann, Øystein (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013-03-19)
    There are as yet to our knowledge no systematic investigations comparing the effects of specific tourism company product and total destination product components on tourists’ experience. The current study addressed this particular issue, based upon a convenience sample of 867 tourists visiting Northern Norway in the summer of 2011. The study results indicated that the effect of the company product ...
  • No evidence that portion size influences food consumption in male Sprague Dawley rats 

    Naneix, Fabien; Pinder, Sophie C.; Summers, Megan Y.; Rouleau, Renee M.; Robinson, Eric; Myers, Kevin P.; McCutcheon, James E. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-18)
    In studies of eating behavior that have been conducted in humans, the tendency to consume more when given larger portions of food, known as the portion size effect (PSE), is one of the most robust and widely replicated findings. Despite this, the mechanisms that underpin it are still unknown. In particular, it is unclear whether the PSE arises from higher-order social and cognitive processes that ...
