Proteoglycans and tumor progression: Janus-faced molecules with contradictory functions in cancer.
Understanding the details of the molecular mechanism of tumor dissemination revealed that several proteoglycan species are involved in the process but their role can be described as Janus-faced. OneExpand

Isolation of a transplantable cell line induced by the MC29 avian leukosis virus.
Summary A transplantable cell line was isolated from a liver tumor induced by the MC29 strain of avian leukosis virus. It was found that its ability to develop into a tumor when inoculated inExpand

Selection and characterization of human melanoma lines with different liver‐colonizing capacity
Two human melanoma lines with low (HTI68) and high (HTI 68‐MI) liver metastatic capacity in immunosuppressed mice were selected in vivo from the A2058 cell line. After i. v. injection of the 2 tumorExpand

Comparative study on Lewis lung tumor lines with 'low' and 'high' metastatic capacity. I. Growth rate, morphology and resistance to host defence.
A highly metastatic variant (LLT-HH) of liver metastasizing Lewis lung tumor (LLT) has been selected. Comparative studies were made on proliferation rate, morphological characteristics and host cellExpand

Wheat germ extract inhibits experimental colon carcinogenesis in F-344 rats.
It has been demonstrated for the first time that a wheat germ extract prevents colonic cancer in laboratory animals. Four-week-old inbred male F-344 rats were used in the study. Colon carcinogenesisExpand
