    Julio soto seminar Julio soto seminar Document Transcript

    • Eduardo E. RiveraDr. Julio SotoExamining the potential anti cancer activities of recombinant disintegrinsCancer is one of the most deadly diseases known in the United States. Dr. Julio Sototalked to us in this seminar about how in his lab they were studying the potentialanti-cancer activities in disintegrins. One of they things they notice was how thecancer cells induced hormones to create new blood vessels that were united to thecancer cells, making this a greater complication. In his study he has noticed howsome cancer cells has less chromosomes and normal cells can promote the growthof cancer cells. Their goal is to find a receptor that can emit a signal that will activatecell division, cell migration or cell death. They used various disintegrins that wasbest suitable for this study and it resulted that two of the disintegrins caused celldeath. In conclusion, further study is needed because they still need to know whichdisintinegrins inhibit angiogenesis and metastasis.
