  8. 8. What was the breakthrough with HeLa Cells?<br />Human cells cultured for the first time! (Gey had cultured other species and had worked for over 20 years with this aim)<br />Cancer researchers considered cultured human cells to hold the key to discovering a cure<br />HeLa cells are a “workhorse” for cell biology: easy to grow, ideal for microscopy, transfection <br />Provided a model cell line for studying normal cellular processes as well as many diseases<br />

  17. 17. What about research at the University of Tennessee?<br />HeLa cells are used by many researchers across campus…..<br />Where is a protein in the cell?<br />What are its binding partners?<br />How does localization change with cell cycle?<br />Use transfection methods to introduce new genes into the cell<br />Use knockdown technologies to selectively reduce levels of specific proteins<br />Examples from my own department<br />Mobility of proteins in membrane<br />Localize proteins within nuclear envelope<br />Finding specific DNA/protein interactions<br />An example from an undergraduate researcher<br />
