Poster 41: Spencer Sawas – Validating Expression of an Attachment Site for Synthetic Mucin Mimics

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Jessica Kramer

The goal of this research was to create a method of attaching synthetically created versions of mucins to the surface of cells. This attachment site will be a genetically modified form of the natural mucin, so it will be able to maintain cellular communication. This attachment site has shown to be accurately expressed in mammalian cells through both fluorescence microscopy and western blot analysis.
