Protection of Chinese hamster cells against the cytotoxic and mutagenic effects of alkylating agents by transfection of the Escherichia coli alkyltransferase gene and a truncated derivative.

Abstract

The cytotoxic and mutagenic effects of various monofunctional and bifunctional alkylating agents have been assessed in V79 Chinese hamster cells that express either the entire O6-alkylguanine (O6AG) and alkylphosphotriester alkyltransferase (ATase) gene (clone 8 cells) or a truncated form that codes only for O6AG ATase activity (clone SB cells). Protection… (More)
