Tre is a recombinant gene isolated from NIH3T3 cells transfected with human Ewing's sarcoma DNA. It is composed of three major genetic elements derived, 5' to 3', from human chromosomes 5, 18 and 17. We report here on transcripts from the 3' domain of tre. The transcripts were cloned from a cDNA library of cytoplasmic poly(A)+ RNA from tre-transfected(More)
A DNA extracted from a clone of chicken cells transformed by the Schmidt-Ruppin strain of Rous sarcoma virus, subgroup D(SR-RSV-D), was assayed for infectivity by means of DEAE-dextran and calcium techniques. The calcium technique like the previously described DEAE-dextran procedure gave rise to viruses in transfection assays with both native and denatured(More)
Rous sarcoma virus transformed Chinese hamster fibroblasts, clone CHR1-3, were established at high temperature, then subcloned. Six subclones with round and flat morphology harboring undeleted and partially deleted RSV proviruses, respectively, were seeded into serum-free synthetic medium with no macromolecular additives, and maintained for 2 mo. One flat(More)
Mouse NIH/3T3 cells, transfected with T24 genomic DNA (J10 cells), carry the human H-ras-1 (hu-H-ras-1) oncogene stably integrated in the chromosomal DNA and display the transformed phenotype with a "criss-cross" morphology and capacity for anchorage-independent growth. When these cells were cultured in the presence of 25 mM DL-methionine, they lost their(More)
The TRE17 oncogene, originally cloned from transfected DNA of Ewing's sarcoma cells, maps to chromosome 17q and is expressed in a wide variety of human cancer cells. We recently detected the variants of this gene by using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and sequencing from the first exon to the third intron. Based on sequence homology scores, the(More)
Serially propagated fibroblast clones were treated with 25-mM methionine and a thioguanine resistance assay was performed at each passage to measure mutagenesis at the HGPRT locus. The spontaneous frequency of thioguanine resistant mutants before treatment was less than 5 X 10(-6) in four clones and 22 X 10(-6) in one clone. These values dropped 10- to(More)
