	It has been done with the Jurkat T lymphoma cell line.  Jurkat was
first transfected with a plasmid expressing the SV40 large T antigen, then
a second plasmid carrying an SV40 origin of replication and a gene of inter-
est was added.  Look for papers by Gerald R. Crabtree's group here at Stan-
ford University.
