Educational Projects:M.Sc. Project:
CANCER STEM CELLSTitle: Differential expression of CD34 and NOTCH in the normal andcancerous tissues of gastric epithelium and its implication in carcinogenesis.Location: University of Madras, Guindy campus.Duration: June to August 2007Guide: Dr.H.Devaraj Professor of Biochemistry & Director, GuindyCampus, University of Madras.Description : Ectopic expression of CD 34 observed in gastric cancer not in normalgastric cells by RT-PCR indicates the presence of CD 34 expressing undifferentiatedHSCs in the cancerous mass. NOTCH suppresses differentiation of HSCs and promotes retention of cancer stem cell properties, so its reexpression during thegastric neoplastic transformation favors cancerous growth. From our experiment, ithas been observed that the retention of dedifferentiated characteristic of CD34expressing HSC cell precursors created by notch expression could promote tumor progression under proliferative environment created by chronic inflammation andtheir mediators.
PLANT BIOTECHNOLOGY AND CULTURETitle:
using Ovary CultureLocation: Andhra Loyola College, Acharya Nagarjuna University.Duration: November 2004 to March 2005.Guide: Fr.Dr.S.Emmanuel.sj, HOD of Biotechnology, Andhra Loyola CollegeDescription: Evaluating the effect of plant growth hormones and effect of differentmedia on in vitro fruiting from ovaries. Experiments were conducted with MSmedium, Gamborg, B5 medium with different growth hormones like BAP, kinetin,GA, NAA at different concentrations. Results obtained concluded that BAP is suitablehormone to obtain in vitro fruiting on full strength MS medium.
