Gap Junction Inhibition Causes an Increase in Apoptosis in C6 Glioma
Division:Health Sciences
Region:Winnipeg Schools
City:Winnipeg, MB
School:Grant Park High School
Abstract:Gap junctions are intercellular channels found throughout the body. They allow for movement of molecules between cells. I studied whether gap junctions were necessary in survival of C6 Glioma cancer cells. My results showed that inhibiting gap junctions reduced cells’ ability to survive UV. This may apply to cancer research.
