Method "To study ATP production routes, [researchers] used Bax-/-, Bak-/- murine renal epithelial cells immortalized by expression of adenovirus E1A and dominant-negative p53 (Degenhardt et al, 2002) (iBMK cells). Isogenic cell lines were generated by transfecting cells with vector expressing either oncogenic H-RasV12G or myr-Akt (Degenhardt et al, 2006 Degenhardt and White, 2006). Note that activation of these specific genes may not result in identical metabolic consequences to that of other related family members that are frequently mutated in cancer (e.g., K-Ras, PI3KCA)."
Comments "Introduction of either oncogene did not substantially impact cellular growth in vitro (Supplementary Table 1), but greatly enhances tumorigenicity in vivo, as evident by faster allograft growth, with the effect of Ras yet stronger than that of Akt (Degenhardt and White, 2006)." iBMK=Immortalized baby mouse kidney epithelial cells
