Topic status: In progress
SASH1 is lost in approximately 5% of all cancers. SASH1 is known to be a tumour suppressor yet its biological function is still unknown. This project will build on preliminary data generated by our research team suggesting the SASH1 may function as a regulator of the DNA repair pathways.
This project will involve a large number of biological techniques to answer some specific questions. These include tissue culture, immuno-blotting, immunofluorescence and cell viability assays.
It is predicted that this short study will provide the fundamental evidence that SASH1 functions to control the genome stability of our cells.
