Dynamic expression of VDR and 1-alpha-hydroxylase in differentiated and re-differentiated human articular chondrocytes
(Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2016-09)
<p><i>Purpose:</i> The goal was to investigate potential roles played by vitamin D in the regulation of joint cartilage biology. We studied the expression of two central elements of vitamin D metabolism, namely the vitamin D receptor and its converting enzyme 1αhydroxylase in human knee cartilage and chondrocytes. <p><i>Methods and Materials:</i> Expression of receptor and enzyme was determined ...

HPV mRNA testing is more specific than HPV DNA testing in triage of women with minor cervial lesions
(Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2013)
In Norway, repeat cytology and HPV testing is used in delayed triage of women with minor cytological lesions. Repeat cytology, HPV DNA testing (Roche Cobas 4800), and HPV mRNA testing (NorChip PreTect HPV-Proofer) were used to follow up 575 women aged 25–69 years with ASCUS / LSIL in primary screening. A total of 206 women (35.8%) were DNA+ and 107 (18.6%) were mRNA+. Repeated ASC-US / LSIL was found ...
The Marine Natural Product Mimic MHP88 Shows Anticancer Activity and has the Potential to Cause Immunogenic Cell Death
(Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2020-03)
The marine natural product mimic MHP 88 is a novel synthetic molecule based on unique structures found in molecules from an arctic marine bryozoan. Initial studies showed that MHP88 kills cancer cells efficiently, but is not hemolytic. In this study, we look closer at the mode of death induced by MHP88 in oral cancer (HSC-3) and lymphoma (Ramos) cell lines. Immunogenic cell death (ICD) is a mode of ...
Chemical and Enzyme-Assisted Extraction of Fucoidan from two Species of Brown Macroalgae (Ascophyllum nodosum and Saccharina latissima)
(Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2022)
Macroalgae are vital species and are known to produce a wide range of bioactive compounds including polysaccharides, such as fucoidan. Traditionally, these compounds are extracted using hazardous solvents that leads to environmental pollution and waste. Considering this, more sustainable technologies are being investigated as greener alternatives.<p> <p>The main goal of this study was to ...
