Investigation of the effects of PACAP in vitro

In the experiments running in the cell culture laboratory we have been examining effects of PACAP using different cell lines. Our first goal is to investigate the protective effect of PACAP and the mechanism by which it exerts its effects. For obtaining more iformation on molecular mechanisms various methods are used (arrays, western blot, flow cytometry).

Currently  running projects:

  • Investigation of the effect of PACAP on Caco-2 human adenocarcinoma cell line
  • Investigation of the effect of PACAP on INT407 human intestinal epithelial cell line
  • Investigation of the effect of PACAP on Y79 retinoblastoma cell line
