Abstract/OtherAbstract:
During attempts to transform a normal human fibroblast strain (GM730) by X-irradiation, we obtained a partially transformed cell strain (GM730pt) which demonstrates several aspects of the transformed phenotype including morphological changes, increased saturation density, growth in soft agar, and focus formation in long-term cultures. When GM730pt cells were transfected with the feline c-myc gene, morphology of the cells changed dramatically following seven days of expression. Transfection of other plasmid DNAs or oncogenes such as pUC8, pSV2neo, src, sis, and H-ras had little or no effects on the phenotype of GM730pt cells. On the other hand, a gel purified, small fragment of c-myc DNA had a complete cell alteration activity. Furthermore, Bal 31 deletion and M13 sequencing experiments showed that the alteration seen in GM730pt cells is delimited to a 24 nucleotide stretch (active myc element) from the second intron of the feline c-myc gene that contains a T-rich sequence.
