“Mechanisms Controlling Intracellular Ca2+ in undifferentiated neuronal CAD Cells”

Abstract: Undifferentiated neuronal CAD cells acquired from oncogenesis driven by cell-specific promoters were used in investigating the mechanisms Controlling Intracellular Ca2+ in undifferentiated neuronal CAD Cells. Hence CAD Cells were cultured in the laboratory under aseptic conditions and after a healthy growth was attained they were introduced to Hypotonic, High K+, Ca2+ free isotonic, ionomycin and Caffeine solutions by the technique of Ca2+ Imaging. This resulted in noticeable changes showing different responses. Fluorescence imaging was carried out and the response to Ca2+ was recorded in order to investigate the mechanisms and the role of Ca2+ in undifferentiated neuronal CAD cells.
