The "Solution" to LSS-Induced Cell Cycle Arrest
Division:Life Sciences
Region:Greater Vancouver
City:Vancouver, BC
School:Sir Winston Churchill Secondary
Abstract:Our project focussed on the effects of laminar shear stress (LSS) on cell growth. Studies have shown that continuous exposure to LSS causes cell cycle arrest. LSS is dependent on the viscosity of the fluid yielding the force. By targeting the viscosity of blood, we attempted to alter the levels of LSS yielded by the blood’s flow in an in vitro simulation.
