biochemical genetic analysis of pyrimidine biosynthesis in mammalian cells. ii. isolation and characterization of a mutant of chinese hamster ovary cells with defective dihydroorotate dehydrogenase (e.c. activity.a mutant (a204) of chinese hamster ovary cells (cho-k1), which is deficient in dihydroorotate (dho) dehydrogenase (e.c. 1.3,3.1) activity, has been isolated by a replica plating procedure. the mutant does not show a requirement for exogenously added pyrimidines. examination of intact cells shows that the mutant accumulates a large amount of carbamyl aspartate and is markedly but not totally deficient in biosynthesis of orotate from earlier precursors of pyrimidine biosynthesis, including asparta ...1979220270
mutation induction by 5-fluorodeoxyuridine in synchronous chinese hamster cells.chinese hamster ovary cells synchronized by mitotic detachment were treated with 5-fluorodeoxyuridine (fdurd), 0.2 micrograms/ml, at various times in the cell cycle. fdurd treatment in the early s period induced resistance to 6-thioguanine. treatment of asynchronous cells with fdurd caused little increase in 6-thioguanine resistance over the spontaneous frequency. mitotic selection thus enhances the probability of a cell being in the portion of s period receptive to mutation. these observations ...1979154970
biochemical genetic analysis of pyrimidine biosynthesis in mammalian cells: iii. association of carbamyl phosphate synthetase, aspartate transcarbamylase, and dihydroorotase in mutants of cultured chinese hamster cells.carbamyl phosphate synthetase (ec, aspartate transcarbamylase (ec, and dihydroorotase (ec, the first three enzymes in de novo pyrimidine synthesis in chinese hamster ovary cell strain kl (cho-kl), cose diment through a glycerol gradient. when an extract from urd- a, a pyrimidine-requiring auxotroph reduced in all three activities, is run on a glycerol gradient, the enzyme activities appear in two peaks higher in the gradient, a peak of aspartate transcarbamylase separa ...197939353
response of cells to hyperthermia under acute and chronic hypoxic conditions.the lethal response of chinese hamster cells heated to 42 degrees was determined following 0 to 30 hr culturing under hypoxic conditions. oxygenated and acutely hypoxic cells were equally sensitive to hyperthermia; however, sensitivity increased with the time of culturing under hypoxic conditions prior to treatment. three hr at 42 degrees resulted in a surviving fraction of approximately or equal to 0.1 under acute hypoxic conditions and less than 0.001 for cells cultured for 30 hr under oxygen- ...197934477
radioprotection by dmso of mammalian cells exposed to x-rays and to heavy charged-particle beams.populations of g1-phase chinese hamster cells in stirred suspensions containing various concentrations of dmso were irradiated with 250 kv x-rays or various heavy charged-particle beams. chemical radioprotection of cell inactivation was observed for all let values studied. when cell survival data were resolved into linear and quadratic components, the extent and concentration dependence of dmso protection were found to be different for the two mechanisms. the chemical kinetics of radioprotection ...1979572979
sterol synthesis in variant chinese hamster lung cells selected for resistance to 25-hydroxycholesterol. cross-resistance to 7-ketocholesterol, 20alpha-hydroxycholesterol, and serum.two lines of chinese hamster lung (dede) cells which are resistant to the killing effect of 25-hydroxycholesterol, and which grow to confluence in its presence, have been isolated. one of the resistant lines exhibited a high to normal growth rate and normal levels of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme a (hmg-coa) reductase (mevalonate:nadp+ oxidoreductase (coa-acylating), ec activity and sterol synthesis in the presence of concentrations of 25-hydroxycholesterol that caused nearly com ...1979762093

the initiation and elongation steps in protein synthesis: relative rates in chinese hamster ovary cells during and after hyperthermic and hypothermic shocks.the relative rates of the initiation and elongation phases of protein synthesis have been determined in heat- and cold-shocked cho cells from measurements of the incorporation of 35s-methionine into n-terminal and internal positions of growing peptides by a modified edman degradation. when the cells are shifted from 37 degrees c to temperatures between 10 degrees c and 34 degrees c, the rate of initiation is at first reduced more extensively than that of elongation. after 20 to 30 minutes at the ...1979762195
isolation and cell cycle analysis of temperature-sensitive mutants from chinese hamster cells.mutants temperature-sensitive for growth have been isolated from the established line of chinese hamster fibroblasts wg1a. these mutants, together with the ones previously isolated by roscoe et al. ('73), have been characterized with regard to their cell cycle properties. most of them become arrested in the g1 phase of the cell cycle when incubated under restrictive conditions. by performing temperature shift experiments with synchronous cultures, the execution steps of most of the mutated funct ...1979762193
[effect of polyethyelene glycol on proliferation of cultured chinese hamster cells].chinese hamster cells in suspension were treated with peg 4000 for 20 min. it was found that cell size began to diminish already when a 5% peg solution was used, and reached the minimal value in a 20% peg solution. a pronounced cell death was observed when peg concentration exceeded 20%, but cells that survived retained their proliferation potential. it is concluded that the cell death results from hypoosmotic shock when cell suspension in peg solution is diluted.1979571153
a simple method for producing different growth fractions in vitro for use in anti-cancer drug studies.a simple technique has been used experimentally to produce in vitro chinese hamster ovary cells with growth fractions ranging from 0 to 100%. known numbers of exponentially growing and plateau-phase tissue culture cells were mixed in various proportions to yield the desired final growth fraction. cells attach to the culture flask surface within 1 hr of mixing. treatment at that time with the nitrosourea compounds, ccnu and meccnu, resulted in differential drug survival sensitivities that were de ...1979570456
gene mutation and sister chromatid exchange in chinese hamster cells.the mutation in hypoxanthine phosphoribosyl transferase gene and the induction of sister chromatid exchange (sce) were comparatively studied treating chinese hamster ovary cells with the mutagens ethylmethanesulphonate. n-methyl-n'-nitro-n-nitrosoguanidine, mitomycin c and x-ray. all the agents exerted strong mutagenic effects and showed a dose-dependent relationship for the induction of sces.1979555171

nucleolar organizing regions of normal chinese hamster and chw cell line chromosomes.the chromosome preparations from fibroblasts of normal male and female chinese hamsters and the cell line chw were stained with agno3. the silver stain was usually localized at the telomeres of autosomes. the marker chromosome m1 in the chw cell line has ag-nor near the centre of the long arm, which indicates that either the long arms of two number 5 chromosomes fused at the telomeres or the intact telomeric region of one chromosome fused with one with a deleted telomere. the variation of ag-nor ...1979527380
enhancement of thermal killing by polyamines. iv. effects of heat and spermine on protein synthesis and ornithine decarboxylase activity.protein synthesis is shown to be very heat-sensitive in chinese hamster cells. it is shut off completely following 15-20 min at 42 degrees c whereas rna and dna syntheses are affected only after much longer exposure times. cells recover from inhibition of protein synthesis upon transfer to 37 degrees c. the degree of recovery is inversely related to the duration of heat exposure and it fits cell survival quantitatively. cells which become temporarily heat-resistant by prior heat-treatment, are a ...1979498061
an ultrastructural study of morphogenesis of fibrogranular complex and centriole in ductuli efferentes of chinese ultrastructural study of ciliated epithelial cells in the ductuli efferentes of young and adult hamsters has revealed that these cells possess dense granules, dense granule clusters, dense bodies and fibrogranular complexes as reservoirs or precursors for ciliogenesis. the dense granules are first seen in the centrosomal region. later, many dense granules and dense granule clusters appear in the apical portion of the epithelial cells where, subsequently, dense bodies are also found. finally, ...1979494233
