Green fluorescent protein (GFP) and herpes simplex virus type-1 thymidine kinase (TK) are commonly used markers in gene transfer studies. The latter gene has also proven to be an effective tool in cancer "suicide" gene therapy. To facilitate rapid and reliable selection of cells expressing TK, we constructed a plasmid expressing a TK-green fluorescent protein fusion gene (TK-GFP). In this fusion gene, the expression of each component is coupled to one another, permitting accurate determinationdoi:10.2144/98244st01 pmid:9564534 fatcat:ikqgl57fojc7nli34ar54e6pgy
