To study the acquired radioresistance of tumor cells, a model system of two cell lines, Djungarian hamster fibroblasts (DH-TK-) and their radioresistant progeny, was established. The progeny of irradiated cells were isolated by treating the parental cell monolayer with a single dose of 20 Gy (PIC-20). The genetic and morphological features, clonogenic(More)
The ability to control gene expression in a temporal and spatial manner provides a new tool for the study of mammalian gene function particularly during development and oncogenesis. In this study the suitability of the tet-system for investigating embryogenesis was tested in detail. The tTACMV(M1) and rTACMV-3 (reverse Tc-controlled transactivator)(More)
One of the most frequent malignancies in humans is lung adenocarcinoma.To develop novel diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for the management of this disease, animal models are required. We have used transgenic mice with lung-targeted expression of the CRaf kinase to evaluate genes altered frequently in human lung adenocarcinoma for their effect on tumor(More)
We have previously shown that mice lacking the protein kinase B-RAF have defects in both neural and endothelial cell lineages and die around embryonic day 12 (E12). To delineate the function of B-RAF in the brain, B-RAF KIN/KIN mice lacking B-RAF and expressing A-RAF under the control of the B-RAF locus were created. B-RAF KIN/KIN embryos displayed no(More)
The efficiency of tumor induction by oncogenes is influenced by modifier genes that determine individual susceptibility. We have used a transgenic mouse model to examine the role of a candidate susceptibility gene, bcl-2, for development of Raf oncogene-induced lung adenomas. Loss of bcl-2 greatly retarded tumor development without affecting tumor(More)
Despite the overall successful application of the tet-system to regulate gene expression in vitro and in vivo, nothing is known so far about the long-term stability of this system in transgenic mice. In this study, mice of generation F2, F3, F4, or F10 of two independent tTA(CMV) transgenic lines were bred with NZL-2 mice containing a tTA-responsive(More)
