antibodies against chromosomal hmg proteins stain the cytoplasm of mammalian cells.antibodies specific to protein hmg-1 were purified by affinity chromatography on sepharose columns to which hmg-1 was covalently bound. immunofluorescence studies with these antibodies reveal that hmg-1 or components which immunologically cross-react with hmg-1 are present in the cytoplasm of chinese hamster v-79, rat liver tr-12 and bovine trachea ebtr-nbl-4 cells. at selected antibody concentrations, the fluorescence present in the cytoplasm is more intense than that observed in the nucleus. t ...1979369705
mitomycin c stimulates production of a toxin in shigella species that causes morphological changes in chinese hamster ovary cells.shigella dysenteriae produced a toxin that caused morphological changes in chinese hamster ovary cells which was different from the neurotoxin (y. takeda, k. okamoto, and t. miwatani, infect. immun. 18:546--548, 1977). it was found that the toxin was produced not only by s. dysenteriae but also by s. flexneri, s. boydii, and s. sonnei. the production of the toxin was stimulated by the addition of 1 microgram of mitomycin c per ml to the culture in the early logarithmic growth phase.1979370009
selective toxicity of 6-hydroxydopa for melanoma cells.the growth inhibitory effect of 6-hydroxydopa, a cytotoxic analog of l-dopa, was studied in melanotic and amelanotic cloudman melanoma, mouse fibroblast l929 and chinese hamster ovary cells. a marked sensitivity of pigmented cells to 6-hydroxydopa was observed with a 10-fold increase in sensitivity of pigmented cells. sensitivity correlated with the capacity of cells to incorporate radiolabeled exogenous l-dopa. the drug affected primarily dna and rna synthesis with greater inhibition observed i ...1979422870
the in vitro and in vivo reaction at the n7-position of guanine of the ultimate carcinogen derived from benzolalpyrene.the previously reported reaction at n2- and n7- of guanine following addition of 7 alpha,8 beta-dihydroxy-9 beta, 10 beta-epoxy-7,8,9,10-tetrahydrobenzo[a]pyrene (anti-bpde) to an aqueous solution of dna has been studied in more detail. the extent of reaction and the relative yields of n2- and n7-products was measured over the range of ph 4--7. the depurination following reaction at the n7-position of guanine was found to have a half-life of 3 h. reaction of the isomeric 7 alpha,8 beta-dihydroxy ...1979428016
visualization of the interphase chromosomes of ornithogalum virens and muntiacus muntjak.a technique for visualizing "interphase chromosomes" was applied to nuclei of the angio-spermous plant, ornithogalum virens (2 n = 6), and the male mammal, muntiacus munjak (2 n = 7), in an attempt to correlate the numbers of "chromosomes" visible during interphase with the respective diploid chromosome numbers. the alterations in chromosome structure observed during g1, s, and g2 periods were comparable to those previously reported in allium cepa and chinese hamster (cho line) cells [33], but f ...1979428620
purine and pyrimidine transport and phosphoribosylation and their interaction in overall uptake by cultured mammalian cells. a re-evaluation.the zero-trans uptake of purines and pyrimidines was measured in suspensions of novikoff rat hepatoma, mouse l, p388 mouse leukemia, and chinese hamster ovary cells by a rapid kinetic technique which allows the determination of uptake time points in intervals as short as 1.5 s. kinetic parameters for purine/pyrimidine transport were determined by measuring substrate influx into cells in which substrate conversion to nucleotides was negligible either due to lack of the appropriate enzymes or to d ...1979429288
identification of a mouse gene required for binding of rauscher mulv envelope gp70.mouse chromosome segregating somatic cell hybrids were established between a mouse thymic leukemai cell line (grsl) and chinese hamster e36 cells. the grsl cells specifically bound purified rauscher leukemia virus gp70 while the e36 cells exhibited no binding. the hybrids selectively bound ruascher gp70 depending on the presence of a mouse cellular gene for the ecotropic murine luekemia gp70 receptor. a syntenic relationship was observed between the dip-3 chromosome marker (on chromosome 5) and ...1979432756
a ts mutant isolated from chl cells: inhibition of dna replication at nonpermissive temperature.a mutant chinese hamster cell clone has been isolated from an s phase culture. this clone, ts154, could not replicate dna at nonpermissive temperature (39 degrees c), although it synthesized dna normally at permissive temperature (33 degrees c). after transfer to 39 degrees, ts154 cells replicated dna semiconservatively through precisely two complete rounds and divided twice before they ceased dna synthesis and further growth. the mutation in ts154 affects dna replication specifically, as its ra ...1979432760
cis-platinum(ii) diamine dichloride causes mutation, transformation, and sister-chromatid exchanges in cultured mammalian cells.the anti-tumor agent cis-platinum(ii) diamine dichloride caused dose-dependent toxicity in v79 chinese hamster cells and in secondary syrian hamster embryo cells. chromosome aberrations were induced and positive dose--response relationships were observed for induction of sister-chromatid exchanges and 6-thioguanine-resistant mutations in v79 cells and morphologic transformation of secondary syrian hamster embryo cells. the findings suggest that this chemical is a potential human carcinogen.1979440327

thymidine transport in cultured mammalian cells. kinetic analysis, temperature dependence and specificity of the transport system.the transport of thymidine has been characterized kinetically and thermodynamically in novikoff rat hepatoma cells grown in culture and, less extensively, in mouse l cells, chinese hamster ovary cells, p388 murine leukemia cells and hela cells. that the characterizations pertained to the transport system per se was ensured, (i) by employing recently developed methods for rapid sampling of cell/substrate mixtures in order to follow isotope movements within a few seconds after initial exposure of ...1979444518
dna fork displacement rates in synchronous aneuploid and diploid mammalian cells.dna fork displacement rates were measured in chinese hamster ovary cells (cho), human hela cells and human diploid fibroblasts. for cho cells two independent techniques were used: one based on cscl equilibrium density gradients and the other on 313 nm photolysis of incorporated bromodeoxyuridine (brdurd). both methods indicated that there was no significant variation in fork displacement rates in cho cells as they progressed through s phase. asynchronous cho cultures displayed the same average v ...1979444527
stages in the prenatal development of the chinese hamster (cricetulus griseus).a system of staging embryos is described for the chinese hamster (cricetulus griseus). this system of staging, based on streeter's developmental horizons in human embryos, comprises three sets of criteria: 1) data on postconceptional age, size and number of somites, 2) external characteristics and 3) internal characteristics. a comparison has been made with data in mouse (theiler, 1972) as well as in primates. it seems that the order of organogenesis, i.e. the sequence in which individual organs ...1979453550
association of human chromosome 14 with a ts defect in g1 of chinese hamster k12 cells.somatic cell hybrids between human lymphoblastoid cells (raji) and temperature-sensitive chinese hamster cells (k12) were selected from monolayer cultures in mem at 40 degrees c. a total of 21 hybrid clones were isolated and karyotyped. all clones contained a near complete set of chinese hamster chromosomes and 1 to 5 human chromosomes. human chromosome 14 present in the hybrid cells of all clones; and was the only human chromosome retained in 10 clones. the presence of human chromosome 14 in hy ...1979455493
induction of sister-chromatid exchanges in human lymphocytes and chinese hamster cells exposed to aflatoxin b1 and n-methyl-n-nitrosourea.the effect of a 1-h exposure to aflatoxin b1 (afb1) in inducing sister-chromatid exchange in chinese hamster ovary (cho) cells and human lymphocytes in the presence or absence of mixed function oxidase ("s9 mix") was compared. cho cells were also exposed to a graded series of doses of n-methyl-n-nitrosourea, a powerful inducer of sce whose action was independent of the presence or absence of s9 mix. cho and human cells showed a close correlation in response to sce induction by afb1 and in both c ...1979460293
the excision of n-methyl-n-nitrosourea-induced lesions from the dna of chinese hamster cells as measured by the loss of sites sensitive to an enzyme extract that excises 3-methylpurines but not enzyme extract from micrococcus luteus excises 3-methyladenine and 3-methylguanine but not o6-methylguanine, 7-methylguanine, 1-methyladenine or 7-methyladenine from dna reacted with n-methyl-n-nitrosourea. the extract was used to detect lesions in the dna of chinese hamster cells treated in culture with n-methyl-n-nitrosourea. it was concluded that 3-methyladenine is excised from these cells with a half-life of about 2.3 h.1979467426
mutagenicity of quercetin and kaempferol on cultured mammalian cells.mutagenic activity of quercetin and kaempferol on v79 chinese hamster cells was investigated. quercetin was proved to have mutagenicity not only by metabolic activation system using rat liver microsomes, but also by direct application method. kaempferol was mutagenic by metabolic activation system, but its activity by direct method seemed very low. these data suggest that the tested flavonoids seem to be metabolized for exerting their mutagenic activity and v79 cells themselves have an enzymic a ...1979467892
mutagenicity of vinyl chloride, vinylidene chloride and chloroprene in v79 chinese hamster cells.the mutagenicity of vinyl chloride, vinylidene chloride (1,1-dichloroethylene) and chloroprene (2-chloro-1,3-butadiene) was tested in v79 chinese hamster cells in the presence of a 15 000 x g liver supernatant from phenobarbitone-pre-treated rats and mice. mutations in terms of 8-azaguanine and ouabain resistance were induced in a dose-related fasion by exposure to vapour of vinyl chloride in the presence of liver supernatant from phenobarbitone-pretreated rats. vapours of vinylidene chloride an ...1979470972

regional assignment of human genes tpi1, gapdh, ldhb, shmt, and pepb on chromosome 12.karyological analysis was performed on a series of human-chinese hamster cell hybrids containing deletions of human chromosome 12. chromosome breakage was produced by treatment of the cells with either x-rays or 5-bromodeoxyuridine and near-visible light. the hybrid clones were analyzed for the presence or absence of the following five human gene markers known to be located on chromosome 12: triosephosphate isomerase-1 (tpi1), glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (gapdh), lactate dehydrogen ...1979477403
pattern of segregation of chicken hprt phenotype in chinese hamster-chick red blood cell hybrids.the pattern of segregation of hypoxanthine phosphoribosyltransferase (hprt, e.c. was determined in synchronized chinese hamster-chick red blood cell hybrids. three hybrid lines were synchronized at the g1-s boundary. bromodeoxyuridine pulses were subsequently applied throughout the s phase, and the frequency of the segregant clones was determined. it was found that the segregation of the chicken-specific hprt phenotype associated with the loss of a chromosome was potentiated by bromodeo ...1979477410
insensitivity of a ricin-resistant mutant of chinese hamster ovary cells to fusion induced by newcastle disease virus.the role of membrane components in the interaction of cells with newcastle disease virus (ndv) was studied using a ricin-resistant mutant of chinese hamster ovary cells (cho-15b), in which there is a deficiency in distal saccharides at the plasma membrane. compared to the parental wild type, the mutant was shown to be 4- to 10-fold less sensitive to either fusion from without or fusion from within induced by ndv. the mutant and wild type were nearly indistinguishable with respect to other intera ...1979480463
vitamin c is positive in the dna synthesis inhibition and sister-chromatid exchange tests.ascorbate caused a dose-dependent increase in sister-chromatid exchanges (sces) in chinese hamster ovary (cho) cells and in human lymphocytes. moreover, in the dna synthesis inhibition test with hela cells, ascorbate gave results typical of dna-damaging chemicals. catalase reduced sce induction by ascorbate, prevented its cytotoxicity in cho cells, and prevented its effect on hela dna synthesis. ascorbate reduced induction of sce in cho cells by n-methyl-n'-nitro-n-nitrosoguanidine (mnng) by dir ...1979481430
mutagenicity of 8-methoxypsoralen and long-wave ultraviolet irradiation in v-79 chinese hamster cells. a first approach to a risk estimate in photochemotherapy.the effect of 8-methoxypsoralen (8-mop) and long-wave ultraviolet irradiation (uva) on cell killing and mutation induction was studied in v-79 chinese hamster cells. no effect was observed after treatment with 8-mop alone (50 microgram/ml, 4 h), uva alone (9000 j/m2), or 8-mop metabolized by rat-liver microsomes. combined treatment with 8-mop and uva induced both cell killing and mutation. this was also observed under conditions approaching patient treatment with puva photochemotherapy with resp ...1979481433
activity of citrinin metabolized by rat and human microsome fractions in clastogenicity and sce assays on chinese hamster v79-e cells.the mycotoxin citrinin is a potent inducer of chromosomal aberrations in the clastogenicity assay on v79-e cells when metabolized by rat and human liver microsomes. rat and human liver microsomes, standardized on protein content, activate citrinin at equal levels. 5 x 10(-4) m citrinin induces complex translocations in a high frequency as well as defects of chromosomal coiling. higher concentrations are cytotoxic, lower ones are almost inactive. after metabolization of mycotoxin by rat-kidney mi ...1979481457
the effect of aphidicolin on adenovirus dna synthesis.aphidicolin inhibits adenovirus dna replication in hela cells and in a cell-free, infected, nuclear extract in which viral dna is elongated. the compound inhibits alpha dna polymerase, extensively purified from hela cells, but has little or no effect on the beta or gamma dna polymerases similarly purified. aphidicolin does not affect thymidine uptake by cells nor does synthesis as it also inhibits dna replication in uninfected cells. the inhibition by aphidicolin is reversible if the drug is rem ...1979482131
misonidazole and mtdq in combination: cytotoxic and radiosensitizing properties in hypoxic mammalian cells.a combination of misonidazole and mtdq (6,6'-methylene-bis-2,2,4 trimethyl-1,2-dihydroquinoline) has been tested for its radiation-sensitizing properties and cytotoxicity, using chinese hamster v79 cells cultured in vitro. both compounds sensitize hypoxic cells to the effects of x-rays, and when used in combination their sensitizing properties are additive. by contrast, the presence of mtdq completely inhibits the cytotoxicity that misonidazole exhibits towards hypoxic cells. these experiments s ...1979486306
cycloheximide-resistance in chinese hamster ovary cells and human fibroblast cells. cytogenetic and biochemical characterization.cycloheximide(chm)-resistant mutant chinese hamster ovary (cho) and human cells were induced with n-nitrosomethylurea (nmu) and ethyl methanesulfonate (ems); the mutants were viable and showed unlimited growth in the presence of chm (7 x 10(-7) m), whereas this concentration inhibits protein synthesis in vivo as well as in vitro. no numerical or structural chromosomal aberrations were found in the mutant cells. in vitro analysis shows that the ribosomes confer resistance against cycloheximide.1979489015
chromosome breaking activity of human feces and its enhancement by transition metals.chloroform-methanol extracts from human fecal samples were found to contain compounds which induce chromosome aberrations in chinese hamster ovary cells. the induction of chromosome aberrations is stimulated by cu2+ or mn2+ and inhibited by fe2+ or fe3+. addition of catalase to the fecal extract or the mixture of fecal extract and mn2+ reduced the frequency of chromosome aberrations. these properties are indicative of hydroxyradical producing agents.1979489168
correlation between cell cycle duration and rna content.the metachromatic fluorochrome acridine orange was used to differentially stain dna and rna in chinese hamster ovary (cho) cells and in mitogen-stimulated human lymphocytes during their progression through the cell cycle. green and red fluorescence of individual cells, representing cellular dna and rna, respectively, was measured by flow cytometry. cho cells were synchronized by selective detachment at mitosis. their rate of progression through g1 and subsequently through s phase correlated with ...1979489667
