if your drug stops protein growth, what other applications do you think that your compound could have?
Like previously mentioned it is a chemotherapeutic which means it can and will stop and kill the growth of cancerous tumor cells with the consequence of also harming the human body.
Since the results from the experiments were inconclusive do you know of any other test you could run to learn more about this drug or its effects on stopping cell growth?
Not off the top of my head but if there was a test that could track what stages of the cell cycle the drug inhibited I believe I would use that.
In hindsight would you have chosen a different drug to test on salmonella?
I don’t think I would have chosen another drug to test because even this data can be beneficial to someone.
You mentioned that the max-dose procedure was conducted in order to determine if antibacterial properties were present. What was the purpose of the bacteriostatic vs. bactericidal procedure?
I believe the idea was to continue the experiment even with an unsatisfactory result just in case something would pop up.
