• The long noncoding RNA NEAT1 and nuclear paraspeckles are up-regulated by the transcription factor HSF1 in the heat shock response 

    Lellahi, Seyed Mohammad; Rosenlund, Ingrid Arctander; Hedberg, Annica; Kiær, Liv Torill; Mikkola, Ingvild; Knutsen, Erik; Perander, Maria (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-10)
    The long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) <i>NEAT1</i> (nuclear enriched abundant transcript 1) is the architectural component of nuclear paraspeckles, and it has recently gained considerable attention as it is abnormally expressed in pathological conditions such as cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. <i>NEAT1</i> and paraspeckle formation are increased in cells upon exposure to a variety of environmental ...
  • Screening for hepatitis C in a general adult population in a low-prevalence area: the Tromsø study 

    Kileng, Hege; Gutteberg, Tore Jarl; Goll, Rasmus; Paulssen, Eyvind Jakob (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-02-26)
    <i>Background - </i>Chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection can progress to cirrhosis and end-stage liver disease in a substantial proportion of patients. The infection is frequently asymptomatic, leaving many infected individuals unaware of the diagnosis until complications occur. This advocates the screening of healthy individuals. The aim of this study was to estimate the prevalence of HCV ...
  • Differential invariants of self-dual conformal structures 

    Kruglikov, Boris; Schneider, Eivind (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-06-17)
    We compute the quotient of the self-duality equation for conformal metrics by the action of the diffeomorphism group. We also determine Hilbert polynomial, counting the number of independent scalar differential invariants depending on the jet-order, and the corresponding Poincaré function. We describe the field of rational differential invariants separating generic orbits of the diffeomorphism ...
  • Estrogen receptors α and β in the central amygdala and the ventromedial nucleus of the hypothalamus: Sociosexual behaviors, fear and arousal in female rats during emotionally challenging events 

    Le Moëne, Olivia; Stavarache, Mihaela; Ogawa, Sonoko; Musatov, Sergei; Ågmo, Anders (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-03-27)
    Estrogens receptors (ER) are involved in several sociosexual behaviors and fear responses. In particular, the ERα is important for sexual behaviors, whereas ERβ modulates anxiolytic responses. Using shRNA directed either against the ERα or the ERβ RNAs (or containing luciferase control) encoded within an adeno-associated viral vector, we silenced these receptors in the ventromedial nucleus of the ...
  • Seasonal variations in objectively assessed physical activity among people with COPD in two Nordic countries and Australia: a cross-sectional study 

    Hoaas, Hanne; Zanaboni, Paolo; Hjalmarsen, Audhild; Morseth, Bente; Dinesen, Birthe; Burge, Angela T.; Cox, Narelle S.; Holland, Anne E. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-06-05)
    <i>Purpose</i>: Seasons and weather conditions might influence participation in physical activity and contribute to differences between countries. This study aimed at investigating whether there were differences in physical activity levels between Norwegian, Danish and Australian people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and establishing if any variations in physical activity were ...
