A study conducted in the Department of Biology, Faculty of Science, University of Pamukkale, Anatolia breed some kind of bee venom causes the death of cancer cells was found to be reported.
Asst. Assoc. Dr. Sevki Leo said, "Anatolian race bee venom effect on cancer cells" to work on the PAU Department of Biology, Faculty of Science Prof. Dr. Approximately 1 year with four students, led by Sen Aladdin is continuing. Stating that they prefer to do the research on bees, especially in the Anatolian breed Armstrong, said:
"The poison content of the Anatolian race chose to believe is different from the others. We provide local beekeepers bees in Denizli. First of anesthesia to knock the bees have gathered with the help of a pair of tweezers and pouches. Then, in a special solution pouches solving these toxic technique before freezing at -80 ° C for half an hour, then set off spool 37 degrees for half an hour. "
Arslan, all content is keselerdeki the solution passed through this process, explaining that he continued:
"The solution property damage protection and help prevent substance in bee venom. Helping to protect the biological activity of bee venom. Then the bee venoms, we looked at did not kill kill cancer cells by applying three different cancer lines. To do this, we have various doses of bee venom cancer cells. One of these, liver cancer cells, colon cancer, and blood cancer hücreleriydi al. Application sonuncunda cancer cell lines, we observed changed to 11 levels of gene expression. Anatolian bee venom breed, even in very low doses that caused the death of these cells to programmed cell death seen increasing. Anatolian bee venom breed colon, liver and leukemia could be used in the treatment of cancers. "
Sevki Arslan, research, pre-data congresses organized by the European Biochemical Societies Federation in Turin, Italy has to offer with two papers, the papers said he saw great interest. Be guaranteed adequate financial support of the project, describing the preliminary phase of the four students have completed four thousand pounds cost Arslan, "Our work continues. Currently, gene expression, as well as changes in the proteins we are working on. If you believe that we will achieve results much more important than the support given. We aim to be completed by the end of year investigation, "he said.
