    Background: Reactive oxygen species (ROS), such as hydrogen peroxide and superoxide, trigger biodegradation of polymer-based nanoparticles (NPs) bearing pinacol-type boronic ester groups. These NPs may selectively release ...
  • Star, Bastiaan; Nederbragt, Alexander Johan; Hansen, Marianne Helén Selander; Skage, Morten; Gilfillan, Gregor Duncan; Bradbury, Ian R.; Pampoulie, Christophe; Stenseth, Nils Christian; Jakobsen, Kjetill Sigurd; Jentoft, Sissel (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2014)
    Degradation-specific processes and variation in laboratory protocols can bias the DNA sequence composition from samples of ancient or historic origin. Here, we identify a novel artifact in sequences from historic samples ...
  • Kvile, Kristina Øie; Ashjian, Carin; Ji, Rubao (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    Diapause at depth is considered an integral part of the life cycle of Calanus copepods, but few studies have focused on the Arctic species Calanus glacialis and Calanus hyperboreus. By analyzing a large set of pan-arctic ...
  • Jenner, Ronald A.; von Reumont, Bjoern M.; Campbell, Lahcen I.; Undheim, Eivind Andreas Baste (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    Centipedes are among the most ancient groups of venomous predatory arthropods. Extant species belong to five orders, but our understanding of the composition and evolution of centipede venoms is based almost exclusively ...
  • Stüken, Anke; Riobo, Pilar; Franco, Jose; Jakobsen, Kjetill Sigurd; Guillou, L; Figueroa, Rosa (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2015)
    Dinoflagellates are microscopic aquatic eukaryotes with huge genomes and an unusual cell regulation. For example, most genes are present in numerous copies and all copies seem to be obligatorily transcribed. The consequence ...
  • Otterbeck, Andreas (Master thesis / Masteroppgave, 2016)
  • Ruus, Anders; Allan, Ian; Bæk, Kine; Borgå, Katrine (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2020)
    Lipids generally represent the major matrix contributing to the absorptive capacity for hydrophobic organic contaminants in aquatic ecosystems. The aim of the present study was to determine whether contaminants partition ...
  • Kaarstad, Erlend (Master thesis / Masteroppgave, 2013)
    Precise estimation of toxicity is essential in the risk assessment of hydrophobic organic compounds (HOCs). Toxicity testing of HOCs in aquatic bioassays is particularly challenging due to loss of substance from the water ...
  • Andersen, Guri Sogn (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2013)
    The lack of recovery in Norwegian populations of the kelp Saccharina latissima (Linnaeus) C. E. Lane, C. Mayes, Druehl & G. W. Saunders after a large-scale disturbance that occurred sometime between the late 1990s and early ...
  • Czachorowski, Abriel Malin (Master thesis / Masteroppgave, 2019)
    Sarcomas arise in patients of all ages and account for approximately 1% of new cancer diagnoses in Norway and the United States. Osteosarcoma is a subtype of sarcoma that typically affects children and adolescents and ...
  • Hoving, Henk-Jan; Christiansen, Svenja; Fabrizius, Eduard; Hauss, Helena; Kiko, Rainer; Linke, Peter; Neitzel, Philipp; Piatkowski, Uwe; Körtzinger, Arne (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    There is a need for cost-efficient tools to explore deep-ocean ecosystems to collect baseline biological observations on pelagic fauna (zooplankton and nekton) and establish the vertical ecological zonation in the deep ...
  • Berntsen, Hanne Friis; Moldes-Anaya, Angel; Bjørklund, Cesilie Granum; Ragazzi, Lorenzo; Haug, Trude M; Strandabø, Rønnaug; Verhaegen, Steven; Paulsen, Ragnhild Elisabeth; Ropstad, Erik; Tasker, Andrew (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2020)
    Perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) are persistent man-made chemicals, ubiquitous in nature and present in human samples. Although restrictions are being introduced, they are still used in industrial processes as well as in ...
  • Lensjø, Kristian Kinden (Master thesis / Masteroppgave, 2013)
    Perineuronal nets (PNNs) are a specialized form of extracellular matrix in the CNS, embodying parvalbumin expressing inhibitory neurons. The PNN assembles towards the end of the period of heightened plasticity, the critical ...
  • Thompson, Elise Holter (Doctoral thesis / Doktoravhandling, 2020)
    This doctoral thesis entails work on learning and memory with the goal of understanding mechanisms that regulate plasticity and affect memory processing. Learning paradigms described here involve classical Pavlovian ...
  • Blackstad, Jan Sigurd Beddari (Master thesis / Masteroppgave, 2017)
    The reciprocally connected entorhinal cortex and hippocampal formation (HF) are pivotal in spatial navigation and episodic memory. Principal neurons in these regions show spatially modulated activity with grid cells in the ...
  • Christensen, Ane Charlotte; Lensjø, Kristian Kinden; Lepperød, Mikkel Elle; Dragly, Svenn-Arne; Sutterud, Hallvard; Blackstad, Jan Sigurd; Fyhn, Marianne; Hafting, Torkel (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2021)
    Grid cells are part of a widespread network which supports navigation and spatial memory. Stable grid patterns appear late in development, in concert with extracellular matrix aggregates termed perineuronal nets (PNNs) ...
