    Phanprasit, Wantanee; Chotiphan, Chotirot; Konthonbut, Pajaree; Laohaudomchok, Wisanti; Ikäheimo, Tiina; Jaakkola, Jouni J.K.; Näyhä, Simo (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-08-11)
    There is ample evidence regarding positive health effects of cycling or walking to work (active commuting [AC]). However, little is known about the effects of AC on work ability. Therefore, we examined 422 Thai chicken meat industry workers who assessed their current work ability (CWA) compared to their lifetime best by assigning scores ranging from 0 to 10. The CWA was compared between active ...

    Vilaplana-Lopera, Nuria; Cuminetti, Vincent; Almaghrabi, Ruba; Papatzikas, Grigorios; Rout, Ashok Kumar; Jeeves, Mark; González, Elena; Alyahyawi, Yara; Cunningham, Alan; Erdem, Ayşegül; Schnütgen, Frank; Raghavan, Manoj; Potluri, Sandeep; Cazier, Jean-Baptiste; Schuringa, Jan Jacob; Reed, Michelle AC; Arranz, Lorena; Günther, Ulrich L; Garcia, Paloma (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-09-02)
    Acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) cells interact and modulate components of their surrounding microenvironment into their own benefit. Stromal cells have been shown to support AML survival and progression through various mechanisms. Nonetheless, whether AML cells could establish beneficial metabolic interactions with stromal cells is underexplored. By using a combination of human AML cell lines and AML ...

    Klec, Christiane; Knutsen, Erik; Schwarzenbacher, Daniela; Jonas, Katharina; Pasculli, Barbara; Heitzer, Ellen; Rinner, Beate; Krajina, Katarina; Prinz, Felix; Gottschalk, Benjamin; Ulz, Peter; Deutsch, Alexander; Prokesch, Andreas; Jahn, Stephan W.; Lellahi, Seyed Mohammad; Perander, Maria; Barbano, Raffaela; Graier, Wolfgang F.; Parrella, Paola; Calin, George Adrian; Pichler, Martin (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-07-01)
    The RNA-binding protein ALYREF (THOC4) is involved in transcriptional regulation and nuclear mRNA export, though its role and molecular mode of action in breast carcinogenesis are completely unknown. Here, we identifed high ALYREF expression as a factor for poor survival in breast cancer patients. ALYREF signifcantly infuenced cellular growth, apoptosis and mitochondrial energy metabolism in ...

    Cioni, Lara; Nikiforov, Vladimir; Miranda Fernandes Coelho, Ana Carolina; Sandanger, Torkjel M; Herzke, Dorte (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-11-23)
    Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a class of chemicals including over 4700 substances. As a limited number of PFAS is routinely analyzed in human serum, complementary analytical methods are required to characterize the overlooked fraction. A promising tool is the total oxidizable precursors (TOP) assay to look for precursors by oxidation to perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAA). The TOP assay was ...

    Vasylenko, Olena; Gorecka, Marta Maria; Waterloo, Knut; Rodríguez-Aranda, Claudia (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-08-16)
    Research in Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease suggests that hand function is affected by neurodegenerative diseases. However, little is known about the relationship between hand function and mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Therefore, we conducted a kinematic analysis of unimanual hand movements in MCI patients to answer whether manual asymmetries and manual dexterity are affected or preserved ...

  • The effect of transcranial direct current stimulation on the interplay between executive control, behavioral variability and mind wandering: A registered report 

    Alexandersen, Andreas; Mittner, Matthias; Csifcsak, Gabor; Groot, Josephine Maria (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-06-11)
    Mind wandering (MW) is a mental phenomenon humans experience daily. Yet, we lack a complete understanding of the neural basis of this pervasive mental state. Over the past decade there has been an increase in publications using transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to modulate the propensity to mind wander, but findings are diverse, and a satisfactory conclusion is missing. Recently, Boayue ...

However, a child-specifc hip MRI scoring system has not been validated.<p> <p>Objective To test the intra- and interobserver agreement of several MRI markers for active and chronic hip changes in children and young adults with JIA and to examine the precision of ...
  • Evolutionary Instability of Collateral Susceptibility Networks in Ciprofloxacin-Resistant Clinical Escherichia coli Strains 

    Sørum, Vidar; Øynes, Emma Lu; Sollied Møller, Anna; Harms, Klaus; Samuelsen, Ørjan; Podnecky, Nicole L.; Johnsen, Pål Jarle (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-07-07)
    ABSTRACT Collateral sensitivity and resistance occur when resistance development toward one antimicrobial either potentiates or deteriorates the effect of others. Previous reports on collateral effects on susceptibility focus on newly acquired resistance determinants and propose that novel treatment guidelines informed by collateral networks may reduce the evolution, selection, and spread of ...
