We generated a cetuximab-resistant DiFi subline, termed DiFi5, by chronic exposure of parental DiFi cells to serially increased doses of cetuximab (from 0.5 nM to 5 nM) for over 1 year. The resulting DiFi5 subline exhibits significant resistance to cetuximab-induced apoptosis. After we confirmed that the phenotype was stable over a period of time of more than 6 months, the RNA from DiFi and DiFi5 cells were extracted and hybridized to an Affymetrix HG-U133A array according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Following the hybridization, the array was scanned using a laser confocal scanner, and microarray image data were analyzed using DNA-Chip Analyzer (dChip), version 1.3, by the Sequencing and Microarray Facility at MD Anderson Cancer Center.
