Relationship between cell lines and cancer research (IHC)

Postby wptmdoorn » Tue Aug 27, 2013 11:39 am

Please correct me if I posted my question in the wrong section.

At my current internship I am going to stain different cell lines (examples: HELAp2, COLO741, etc) with antigens (immunohistochemistry) relating to cancer research (examples p53, MSH-2/6, MLH-1, PMS-2). But I can’t seem to understand the underlying reason why we would want to build a database with those cell lines. The idea is to test lots of different cell lines with those 5 stains and record them into a database. Is it to predict further results with cancer research? Could anybody please point me in some way? I am not getting the complete picture.

Thank you very much in advance.

Regards,

William van Doorn

Maybe best idea would be to ask your advisor. My guess would be identification of markers.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

I could. But that's the easiest way to go and I have no reason to do it like that. There should be a good idea behind it where I can find lots of information on scientific articles. I really need to push my self study into the right direction.
