chemotherapeutic-resistant cell lines - (Jun/27/2013 )

hello there,

does anyone of you know how to produce chemotherapeutic-resistant cell lines?

thanks in advance


A basic procedure would be to take cells, treat with the drug at a non-lethal dose (say LD50) and select cells that are resistant. Another way would be to add a resistance gene by stable transfection.
