Detection of Specific DNA Sequences in Somatic Cell Hybrids and DNA Transfectants
One of the methods to study gene expression in mammalian cells is to introduce the desired gene or genes into an appropriate recipient mammalian cell. There are several methods to introduce foreign genes into mammalian cells. These include somatic cell hybridization of whole cells, fusion of whole cells with microkaryoplasts, chromosome transfer, chromatin transfer, and DNA transfer.
