Tumorigenic Transformation of Mammalian Cells Induced by a Normal Human Gene Homologous to the Oncogene of Harvey Murine Sarcoma Virus

Tumorigenic Transformation of Mammalian Cells Induced by a Normal Human Gene Homologous to the Oncogene of Harvey Murine Sarcoma Virus

E H Chang et al. Nature.

Abstract

A normal human gene homologous to the p21 ras oncogene of Harvey murine sarcoma virus induced oncogenic transformation and high p21 ras levels in murine fibroblasts when this gene was ligated to a control element (the long terminal repeat) from a murine or feline retrovirus. These results indicate that high levels of a gene product encoded by a normal human oncogene can induce tumorigenic transformation.
