Cultured P388/S mouse lymphoma cells resistant to 5-bromodeoxyuridine (BUdR) and deficient in thymidine kinase (TK-) were fused with P388/DAG cells resistant to 1,2:5,6-dianhydrogalactitol (DAG), an anticancer alkylating agent, and to 6-thioguanine (6-TG) and deficient in hypoxanthine phosphoribosyl-transferase (HPRT-). Sensitivity to DAG in the hybrid line was very close to that in the P388/DAG line, which means that resistance to DAG was inherited in a quasi-dominant manner. Hybrid cells showed cross-resistance, similar to that of the DAG-resistant line, to two other hexitols, dibromodulcitol (DBD) and disuccinyldianhydrogalactitol (DisuDAG).
