Isolation of human KB cell lines resistant to epidermal growth factor-Pseudomonas exotoxin conjugates.

Mutants of the human KB carcinoma cell line resistant to a cytotoxic conjugate of epidermal growth factor (EGF) and Pseudomonas exotoxin (PE) were selected. EGF-PE and the drug verapamil, which enhanced EGF-PE cytotoxicity, were used in the selection process. These mutants also showed some cross-resistance to PE. All of the EGF-PE resistant variants… CONTINUE READING
