Cancer cells differ from normal cells by the combination of normal proteins that are present on their surfaces.
- Students Observe the Reaction of Cancer Cell Markers and Their Corresponding Antigens
- Instructions Provided
- Lab Takes 35 Minutes to Complete
- Material for 10 Student Groups Provided
Antibodies against these proteins specifically bind to cancer cells but not normal cells. This characteristic allows for early detection of cancer and potentially a way of delivering cancer therapies.
In this experiment, students view this process first hand and understand the basis of cancer diagnosis. The lab takes 35 minutes to complete and provides material for 10 student groups.
Ordering information: This kit includes instructions, microtiter plates, cancer cell markers, normal cell markers, transfer pipets, and buffer.
