Interactions between TA3 mammary-carcinoma cells and liver cells were studied with the electron microscope in mouse livers that had been perfused with a defined medium containing the tumour cells. Infiltration of liver tissue by the TA3 cells proceeded in the following steps. First, numerous small protrusions were extended through endothelial cells and into(More)
Liver of (C57BL X DBA)F1 mice were perfused in situ with a synthetic hemoglobin-free medium, to which murine lymphosarcoma cells were added. All cells were arrested. They were only found in the sinusoids, predominantly in periportal areas. Many lymphosarcoma cells penetrated the walls of the sinusoids with protrusions that extended into and through the(More)
The influence of tubulin-binding agents on the infiltration of murine MB6A lymphosarcoma and TA3 mammary carcinoma cells into primary rat hepatocyte cultures was studied. Colchicine, nocodazole and vinblastine reduced the number of infiltrating lymphosarcoma cells, probably by interfering with the adhesion of these cells to the exposed hepatocyte surface.(More)
Interactions were studied between highly metastatic murine MB6A lymphosarcoma cells and rat liver endothelial cells that had been isolated by collagenase perfusion and purified by unit gravity sedimentation. Experiments were performed on the day of isolation. MB6A cells were observed to adhere to the endothelial cells. Addition of rat serum had a striking(More)
We have examined whether pertussis toxin, an agent known to inhibit entry of normal lymphocytes into tissues, affects invasion and metastasis formation by malignant lymphoma and T-cell hybridoma cells. The toxin reduced invasion in vitro in hepatocyte cultures to 20% of control values. Inhibition was maximal after pretreatment for 2 h with approximately 100(More)
The number of murine MB6A lymphosarcoma cells that infiltrated rat hepatocyte cultures was found to be diminished after treatment of the lymphosarcoma cells with univalent antibodies raised against these tumour cells (anti-MB6A Fab), and also after treatment of the hepatocyte cultures with univalent antibodies directed against rat liver plasma membranes(More)
Studies have consistently demonstrated a reciprocal relationship between internalizing disorders and several chronic physical health conditions. Yet, much of the extant literature fails to take into account the role of comorbidity among internalizing disorders when examining the relationship with poor physical health. The current study applied latent(More)
MB 6A lymphosarcoma and TA3 mammary carcinoma cells have previously been shown to infiltrate from liver blood vessels, where they had been arrested, into the liver parenchyma. The same tumour cells were previously added to cultures of isolated hepatocytes, 24 h after their isolation. Both tumour cell types adhered to both dorsal and lateral surfaces of(More)
Mechanisms of adhesion between tumor cells and hepatocytes, which are likely to play a role in liver metastasis formation, were studied in vitro. TA3 mammary carcinoma and MB6A lymphosarcoma cells were added to rat hepatocytes that had been cultured for 24 hours. Adhesion was quantified by counting adherent cells seen in sections of pelleted, Epon-embedded(More)
