Research of Detection Method for Cytotoxic Effects of Environmental Pollutants Using Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) in HeLa Cells
Si-won Lee , Soo il Lee , Jinhee Choi
  The toxicity of environmental pollutants was measured between a image of the surface topography in HeLa cells using atomic force microscopy for the possibility of toxic effect measurement and environmental monitoring. A image of the surface topography by AFM were estimated as toxic endpoints. The surface topography by AFM was observed a change of the cell surface in the environmental pollutants, but the standard of the measurement requires for the dose-effect degree. The overall results indicate that the possibility of measurement using AFM were confirmed a dose-effect degree related toxic effects, but it requres correlation between more various biomarker and AFM"s measurements if the possibility of the toxic effect measurement was established.
