Derivation and study of human epithelial cell lines resistant to killing by chromium trioxide.


CrO3 is cytotoxic for human epithelial 293 kidney cells over a narrow concentration range of approximately 2-8 microM (D50 approximately 3.0 microM); significantly greater toxicity is observed in clonogenic assays (D50 approximately 0.1-1.0 microM). Survival of a small fraction of cells (< or = 0.1%) at CrO3 concentrations between 10(-5) to 10(-3) M, and… (More)
