  • Abstract L5178Y cells in culture have a requirement for l -methionine which cannot be satisfied by supplying the components necessary for de novo biosynthesis [1]. Methionine deprivation produced a rapid and progressive loss of cell viability (30°o by 6 hr: 90°o by 24 hr). Cells which remained viable after being deprived of methionine could be rescued by l -methionine supplementation. L5178Y cells in culture were also highly sensitive to the folate antagonist, methotrexate. Exposure to a… CONTINUE READING
