Chromosome breakage at a major fragile site associated with P-glycoprotein gene amplification in multidrug-resistant CHO cells.

Hittelman, W N; Kuo, M T; Jiang, L X; Vyas, R C

Recent studies of several drug-resistant Chinese hamster cell lines suggested that a breakage-fusion-bridge mechanism is frequently involved in the amplification of drug resistance genes. These observations underscore the importance of chromosome breakage in the initiation of DNA amplification in ma...

Cell cycle regulation of H2b histone octamer DNA-binding activity in Chinese hamster lung fibroblasts.

Maxson, R; Ito, M; Lee, A S; Sharma, A

The promoter regions of H2b histone genes contain a 14-base-pair element which includes the octamer ATTTGCAT. Mutational analysis has implicated the octamer element in the cell cycle-dependent expression of H2b histone genes. In this report, we address the question of whether the DNA-binding activit...

Biochemical evidence for multiple independent emetine resistance genes in Chinese hamster cells.

Roufa, D J; Nielsen-Smith, K; Frahm, M; McGill, S

Hybridization-complementation studies indicated that mutations in multiple genes can render Chinese hamster cells resistant to the alkaloid translation inhibitor emetine. Two of the genes, emtA and emtB, recognized in Chinese hamster lung and ovary cell lines, respectively, are known to affect the r...

Bayesian statistical analyses for presence of single genes affecting meat quality traits in a crossed pig population.

Janss, L.L.G.; Arendonk, J.A.M., van; Brascamp, E.W.

Presence of single genes affecting meat quality traits was investigated in F(2) individuals of a cross between Chinese Meishan and Western pig lines using phenotypic measurements on 11 traits. A Bayesian approach was used for inference about a mixed model of inheritance, postulating effects of polyg...

Assignment of genes encoding metallothioneins I and II to Chinese hamster chromosome 3: evidence for the role of chromosome rearrangement in gene amplification.

Hildebrand, C E; Stallings, R L; Longmire, J L; Munk, A C; Crawford, B D

Cadmium resistant (Cdr) variants with coordinately amplified metallothionein I and II (MTI and MTII) genes have been derived from both Chinese hamster ovary and near-euploid Chinese hamster cell lines. Cytogenetic analyses of Cdr variants consistently revealed breakage and rearrangement involving ch...

Analysis of the genes involved in the insulin transmembrane mitogenic signal in Chinese hamster ovary cells, CHO-K1, utilizing insulin-independent mutants.

Brown, E; Mamounas, M; Luong, C L; Ross, S; Coulter, K; Carroll, G; Englesberg, E

CHO-K1 cells, wild type (WT), grow in a defined medium with insulin as the only essential hormone. When starved for insulin, these cells accumulate in G0/G1 stage. Insulin binding to its receptor stimulates DNA synthesis and cell division and induces an increase in abundance of mRNA for c-fos, c-jun...

Amplified dihydrofolate reductase genes are localized to a homogeneously staining region of a single chromosome in a methotrexate-resistant Chinese hamster ovary cell line.

Urlaub, G; Nunberg, J H; Schimke, R T; Kaufman, R J; Chasin, L A

Methotrexate-resistant Chinese hamster ovary cells selected for high resistance by progressive increments of methotrexate in the culture medium have levels of dihydrofolate reductase (tetrahydrofolate dehydrogenase, 7,8-dihydrofolate: NADP+ oxidoreductase, EC 200 times that of sensitive cel...

Amplification and loss of dihydrofolate reductase genes in a Chinese hamster ovary cell line.

Kaufman, R J; Schimke, R T

During stepwise increases in the methotrexate concentration in culture medium, we selected Chinese hamster ovary cells that contained elevated dihydrofolate reductase levels which were proportional to the number of dihydrofolate reductase gene copies (i.e., gene amplification). We studied the dihydr...

Amplification and expression of human alpha-globin genes in Chinese hamster ovary cells.

Lau, Y F; Kan, Y W; Lin, C C

We studied the effects of gene amplification on human globin gene expression in Chinese hamster ovary cells.

A novel DNA damage-inducible transcript, gadd7, inhibits cell growth, but lacks a protein product.

Hollander, M C; Fornace, A J; Alamo, I

gadd7 cDNA was isolated from Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells on the basis of increased levels of RNA following treatment with UV radiation. The transcript for gadd7, as well as for four other gadd genes, was found to increase rapidly and coordinately following several different types of DNA damage...

A 22-kd protein (sorcin/V19) encoded by an amplified gene in multidrug-resistant cells, is homologous to the calcium-binding light chain of calpain.

Hes, E; Van der Bliek, A M; Biedler, J L; Meyers, M B; Borst, P

We have previously shown that at least five linked genes are co-amplified and overexpressed in the multi-drug resistant (MDR) Chinese hamster ovary cell line CHRC5. We show here that one of these genes (class 4) codes for a small phosphorylated, cytosolic protein, sorcin/V19, known to be overproduce...
