1. A method of activating a predetermined normally transcriptionally silent gene within the genome of a cell line so as to enable said cell line to express the gene product of said gene, comprising inserting a DNA construct into said genome by homologous recombination, said DNA construct comprising a DNA regulatory segment capable of stimulating expression of said gene when operatively linked thereto and a DNA targeting segment homologous to a region of said genome within or proximal to said gene, wherein said construct is inserted such that said regulatory segment is operatively linked to said gene of interest.
