Recent progress in understanding mechanisms of mammalian DNA amplification. by: Gene amplification may be viewed as a different type of alteration in genome structure; it increases the number of copies of a gene within a cell.

Gene amplification results from repeated rounds of DNA replication, yielding multiple copies of a particular region (Figure ).

The key is that the EcoRI site is within the kan r gene, so when a piece of human DNA is inserted there, the gene's function is destroyed.

Figure Screening Clones All E. coli cells transformed by the vector, whether it carries human DNA or not, can grow in the presence of ampicillin. Gene amplification is much more likely to occur in tumor cells that have already acquired genetic instability through alterations in cell cycle checkpoint pathways.

Gene amplification can also occur as an artifact when tumor cells are cultured in vitro. HISTOLOGY. In conclusion, the IR/MAR gene amplification method is a novel and efficient platform for recombinant antibody production in mammalian cells, which rapidly and easily enables the establishment of.

The amplification mechanism of the DHFR gene in MTX-resistant cells has been frequently employed for recombinant protein production in mammalian cells (12, 13).
