Recently, researchers in TSG found that Ncp-M1 blocks the liver-specific transporter proteins OATP1B1/OATP1B3. These transporters are responsible for hepatocellular uptake of growth-stimulating steroids, several drugs, and toxins like microcystin, and are an important part of the detoxification machinery of the liver. Ncp-M1 is non-toxic to both liver cells and other cell types, and its mechanism... Read more
The Norwegian Research School in Medical Imaging arranges a new PhD course in light and force based molecular imaging. The course will be held at the Department of Physics at NTNU during the autumn 2011.
The January issue of MICs newsletter focuses on MICs high quality and efficient service in sample preparation for light and electron microscopy.
22nd– 25th of February 2011, MIC arranges a course in image processing aimed at teaching users how to better extract valuable parameters from their scientific images and how best to represent images. The course is open for all researchers.
During this years Health, Security, and Environment (HSE) meeting the Biorecognition group was awarded with the HSE prize for its contribtions.
The fibroblast integrin alpha11beta1 is induced in a mechanosensitive manner involving activin A and regulates myofibroblast differentiation.
The november edition of the MIC newsletter is intended to inform you about your research opportunities to perform image processing at MIC. In addition, it provides some information about our new booking system.
Protein analysis performed at the Proteomics-unit (PROBE) at the Department of Biomedicine is central to scientists in Bergen in their hunt for a solution to MS.
The October edition of the MIC newsletter aims to inform about the research opportunities offered by MICs High-content/High-throughput microscope as well as other new services now offered by MIC.
Stroke patients have particular high risk of thrombotic events caused by platelet (thrombocyte) activation, which may lead to new infarctions. Secondary treatment of these patients with anti-platelet therapy consisting of aspirin and dipyridamole is therefore a common protocol. Recent results on the mechanism of action of this treatment suggest that regulation of platelet shape change, the... Read more
At the Department of Biomedicine a postdoctoral position is vacant for the duration of two years. The position is financed by the University of Bergen (UiB) and The Research Council of Norway and is attached to the Proteomics Unit UIB (PROBE http://www.uib.no/rg/probe) at the Department of Biomedicine. The work place will be at the Building for Basic Biological Research, Jonas Lies Vei 91.
