Project: Effect of micro-organisms on colon cancer cell invasion

project duration
01-JAN-01 – 31-DEC-03
abstract
The aim of this project is 1) to look to stimulation of invasion of colon cancer cells induced by bacteria 2) to investigate the mechanism of induced invasion. This might work via collagenolytic activity of the bacterie or via bacterial stimulation of collagenolytic activity of the cancer cells. Alternatively, the mechanism of induced invasion might work via molecular signal transduction in which transcription of genes might be involved.
