    Mutugi Nthiga, Thaddaeu; Shrestha, Birendra Kumar; Lamark, Trond; Johansen, Terje (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-07-25)
    The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is the largest membrane-bound organelle in eukaryotic cells and plays critical roles in diverse processes in metabolism, signaling and intracellular organization. In response to stress stimuli such as nutrient deprivation, accumulation of misfolded proteins or exposure to chemicals, the ER increases in size through upregulated synthesis of its components to counteract ...
  • Capture of a novel, antibiotic resistance encoding, mobile genetic element from Escherichia coli using a new entrapment vector 

    Tansirichaiya, Supathep; Moyo, Sabrina John; Al-Haroni, Mohammed; Roberts, Adam P. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-03-01)
    <b><p>Aims</b> Antimicrobial resistance genes (ARGs) are often associated with mobile genetic elements (MGEs), which facilitate their movement within and between bacterial populations. Detection of mobility is therefore important to understand the dynamics of MGE dissemination and their associated genes, especially in resistant clinical isolates that often have multiple ARGs associated with MGEs. ...
  • Chapter 11 - Hydrogels as intrinsic antimicrobials 

    Vanić, Željka; Skalko-Basnet, Natasa (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2019-10-25)
    Hydrogels are currently applied as the vehicles for drugs or active substances, rather than the active contributors to therapeutic activities. With increasing challenges related to antimicrobial resistance against many antibiotics, natural origin hydrogels have become attractive as more than just vehicles. Although many natural polymers exhibit intrinsic antimicrobial properties, these properties ...
  • Cryoneurolysis for cervicogenic headache - A double blinded randomized controlled study
