Monosomy 6 in human cultured fibroblast-like cells permanently stimulated by fibroblast growth factor 1: evidence for selection.

The appearance of cells with monosomy 6 (mono6 cells) in cultures of human fibroblast-like cells during long-term stimulation with acidic fibroblast growth factor (FGF1) was confirmed in five of the six lines newly investigated. Aneugenic pretreatment at the start of the cultures accelerated the emergence of mono6 cells, as would be expected if selection… CONTINUE READING
