Cell death detection using adenosin kinase - (Jul/03/2013 )
Hey guys, I came across this method to detect death in cells in vitro. It is a very fast and sensitive test. You can check it out in detail through the link:
I was curious, why is this useful? Who wants to detect dead cells?!
Many people - what do you think cancer chemotherapy drugs do??
cancer chemotherapy drugs kill cells? Does cell death detection help cancer chemotherapy? That'd be interesting
If you want to know how and why your cells are dying - then yes, it is helpful for cancer research
That is true, thanks very much Could you possibly think of any other applications in which the technique can be used?
I think that Diabetes and hypertension genetic can not be disregarded as most of such ailment could be inherited, thank you.
