    • Demyelinating polyneuropathy in goats lacking prion protein. 

      Skedsmo, Fredrik Strebel; Malachin, Giulia; Våge, Dag Inge; Hammervold, Mie Marie; Salvesen, Øyvind; Ersdal, Cecilie; Ranheim, Birgit; Stafsnes, Marit Hallvardsdotter; Bartosova, Zdenka; Bruheim, Per; Jäderlund, Karin Hultin; Matiasek, Kaspar; Espenes, Arild; Tranulis, Michael A. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Studies in mice with ablation of Prnp, the gene that encodes the cellular prion protein (PrPC), have led to the hypothesis that PrPC is important for peripheral nerve myelin maintenance. Here, we have used a nontransgenic ...
    • DNA glycosylase Neil2 contributes to genomic responses in the spleen during clinical prion disease 

      Scheffler, Katja; Jalland, Clara Maria Osnes; Benestad, Sylvie L.; Moldal, Torfinn; Ersdal, Cecilie; Gunnes, Gjermund; Suganthan, Rajikala; Bjørås, Magnar; Tranulis, Michael A. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      The DNA glycosylase Neil2 is a member of the base excision repair (BER) family of enzymes, which are important for repair of oxidative DNA damage. Specifically, Neil2 participates in repair of oxidized bases in single-stranded ...

      Gudmundsson, Sveinn H; Bernhoft, Aksel; Sivertsen, Tore; Ersdal, Cecilie (Others, 2022)
    • Goats naturally devoid of PrPC are resistant to scrapie 

      Salvesen, Øyvind; Espenes, Arild; Reiten, Malin Rokseth; Vuong, Tram Thu; Malachin, Giulia; Tran, Linh Dinh Thoai; Andréoletti, Olivier; Olsaker, Ingrid; Benestad, Sylvie Lafond; Tranulis, Michael A.; Ersdal, Cecilie (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Prion diseases are progressive and fatal, neurodegenerative disorders described in humans and animals. According to the “protein-only” hypothesis, the normal host-encoded prion protein (PrPC) is converted into a pathological ...

    • The cellular prion protein and the inflammatory response 

      Salvesen, Øyvind (PhD Thesis;2017:81, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
      The cellular prion protein (PrPC) is known for its pivotal role in the development of prion diseases, such as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease in humans and scrapie in small ruminants. In these diseases, PrPC is converted into a ...
