Human TK6 lymphoblasts were treated with the acridine derivative ICR-191, and mutants at the hprt locus were isolated. Mutant hprt cDNA was reverse-transcribed from mRNA, amplified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and sequenced. Additions of single G:C base pairs (+1

The specificity of frameshift mutations induced by several classes of chemical mutagens was determined using a collection of mutant E. coli lacZ genes. This collection can detect each of five kinds of specific frameshift events by scoring Lac+ revertant colonies.

We report the first use of green fluorescent protein (GFP) for mutation detection. We have constructed a plasmid-based bacterial system whereby mutated cells fluoresce and non-mutated cells do not fluoresce. Fluorescence is monitored using a simple hand-help UV lamp; no

In order to investigate the influence of loss of heterozygosity (LOH) events on mutation rate, we studied two closely related human lymphoblastoid cell lines, AHH-1 (h2E1.v2) and MCL-5, which are heterozygous at the tk locus (chromosome 17q23-25). Although they have

Deficiency of DNA mismatch repair is a common feature of cancers exhibiting instability of microsatellite DNA sequences. Cancers with microsatellite instability are recognizable by their high rate of spontaneous frameshift mutations within microsatellite sequences, their resistance to killing by cytotoxic
