Findings in the Area of Mammary Gland Biology and Neoplasia Reported from College of Dentistry

June 20, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Health & Medicine Week -- Current study results on Mammary Gland Biology and Neoplasia have been published. According to news reporting from Seoul, South Korea, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "To reveal the specific functions of various genes during embryonic development, the manipulation of genes using techniques such as electroporation is of fundamental importance for providing direct evidence concerning function or downstream activation of signaling networks. In vitro embryo culture and electroporation are useful techniques to introduce foreign genes, for developmental biology studies."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the College of Dentistry, "Among the various mammalian culture techniques, Trowell culture is suitable for studies of embryonic mammary gland development because of its stability and ease of use in conjunction with electroporation technique application. The manipulation of gene expression using electroporation is a useful technique for the functional analysis of a particular gene."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "In this protocol, full steps for electroporation and in vitro embryo culture have been described for use in embryonic mammary gland development research."
