Differences between rodent and human cell lines in the amount of integrated DNA after transfection.
The suitability of Chinese hamster and human cell lines for DNA-mediated gene transformation was investigated with respect to two parameters: the average quantity of and the integrity of integrated exogenous DNA fragments. No large differences were observed between most cell lines concerning the extent of fragmentation of the transferred DNA molecules. By contrast, the average number of sequences stably incorporated by the human cells (four lines tested) was 20- to 100-fold lower than the average amount inserted in the five Chinese hamster lines investigated. The very low uptake exhibited by the human cells, ranging from less than 100 up to 500 kb, renders these cells less suitable for transfection with genomic DNA to isolate specific genes.
