DEPARTMENT OF CELL BIOLOGY - Research topics that are solved in our department
Research on this topic is aimed on the experimental oncology. Photodynamic therapy with hypericin (HY-PDT) is a part of several research projects that focus on non-caspase signaling in programmed cell death induced by HY-PDT, role of ABC transport systems induction/modulation in the effectiveness of different chemotherapeutic agents and the effect of histone deacetylase inhibitors on the efficacy of HY-PDT. Research on the erythropoietin receptor (EpoR) is focused on the molecular characterization EpoR in cancer but also in normal human cells, with focus on the exact location of EpoR, an analysis of its features and description of EpoR isotypes.
Development of the spinal cord
Research is focused on development of nervous system using histological and immunohistochemical methods and electron microscopy. Using rat as our animal model we investigate developmental processes which include production, migration and reciprocal interactions between distinct neuronal and glial cell types in developing spinal cord and adjacent structures during the second half of embryonic development, first weeks of postnatal life and in the adulthood. Another goal of our research is to characterize various aspects of 5-bromo-2-deoxyuridine administration to the two most frequently used animal species in neurobiological research (laboratory rat and laboratory mouse).
