Two tumor lines derived from 3LL (Lewis lung carcinoma) endowed with different metastatic potential and stable for their metastatic phenotype during serial in vivo passages, have been analysed for growth and dissemination following treatment with a monoclonal antibody. We have used a recently developed MoAb 135-13C to a tumor-associated antigen of murine(More)
In attempts to correlate metastatic potential with specific properties of tumor cells, homogeneous subpopulations, which are endowed with low or high metastatic potential, have been selected from Lewis lung carcinoma (3LL). In particular, since cell surface constituents are possibly involved in the metastatic process, changes in antigen expression have been(More)
The Nm23 protein is a nucleoside diphosphate kinase (NDPK) and is thought to play a critical role in metastatic behavior. It has been reported that a NDPK activity is present in microtubules assembled in vitro. Since microtubule assembly is determinant in cell growth and differentiation, we investigated whether Nm23-M1 forms molecular complexes with(More)
Homogeneous subpopulations, which are endowed with low or high metastatic potential, were selected from Lewis lung carcinoma (3LL) in an attempt to correlate metastatic phenotype with specific properties of tumor cells. Since the growth of malignant cells at secondary sites could depend on their ability to respond to microenvironments, the growth factor(More)
The structure and the function of the p53 gene were studied in two metastatic cell variants derived from Lewis lung carcinoma. Single missense mutation at codon 334 was detected in the p53 gene of both cell variants. In spite of the identical mutation, the in vitro and in vivo growth rates of the two cell variants were differentially affected by the(More)
