Abstract

DNA from T24, a cell line derived from a human bladder carcinoma, can induce the morphological transformation of NIH 3T3 cells. Using techniques of gene rescue to clone the gene responsible for this transformation, we have found that it is human in origin, <5 kilobase pairs in size and is homologous to a 1,100-base polyadenylated RNA species found in T24 and HeLa cells. Blot analysis indicates extensive restriction endonuclease polymorphism near this gene in human DNAs.
