    Abstract

    Cell lines initially selected for resistance to the antibiotics Icanamycin, streptomycin and chloramphenicol, were each tested for resistance to several different antibiotics. Only the kanamycin resistant lines showed any cross-resistance to other antibiotics. The three lines tested were resistant to streptomycin and neomycin, while one of them, KR103, was also resistant to chloramphenicol early in its history, although this resistance was subsequently lost. None of the lines showed any resistance to cycloheximide.
