Curcumin Chemosensitization in Head and Neck Cancer Cells
mentored by Dr. Stephen Tuttle.
Curcumin enhances cisplatin toxicity via covalent binding to the penultimate celenocysteine residue of thioredoxin reductase 1.
:: Modified MTT Assay
:: Western Blot
:: Clonogenic Assay
:: Cell Culture
There is data that suggests that curcumin chemosensitizes head and neck cancer cells; however, more experiments and statistical analysis must be performed.
