2,3,7,8 Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin: Targeting Toxins
Region:Cariboo Mainline
City:Merritt, BC
School:Merritt Secondary School
Abstract:Interaction between the 2,3,7,8 tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin and the Ah and CD95 cell receptors leads to premature cell apoptosis, birth defects and promotion of cancer cells. In this study toxic steps were identified and potential cytotoxic pathways were developed. The viral Flice Inhibitory Protein (Flip-c) and the flavonoid, Quercetin were identified as potential toxicity inhibitors. These results could help to reduce incidence of cancer.
