ROLE OF THE FUNCTIONAL ER-MITOCHONDRIA INTERACTION IN THE REGOLATION OF ER STRESS-MEDIATED APOPTOSIS IN PROSTATE CANCER CELL LINES

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The Ca2+-mediated functional crosstalk between ER and mitochondria regulates the apoptotic response to several stimuli. Moreover, Ca2+ transfer to mitochondria and apoptosis is also influenced by the ER-mitochondria distance and tethering. Aim of this project is to evaluate the importance of the ER-mitochondria crosstalk in the modulation of apoptosis in different prostate cancer cell lines. Morphological and functional integrity, as well as the ER-mitochondria tethering, will be evaluated by confocal analysis and imaging, and subfractionation protocols. Cell sensitivity of different prostate cancer cell lines to several pro-apoptotic stimuli will be also evaluated by measuring Ca2+-exchange between ER and mitochondria.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
