We have compared the rate and extent of adhesion of various types of mouse tumor cells to endothelial cells derived from different organ sources. Our panel of tumors has included sarcoma, bladder carcinoma, glioma, teratoma, hepatoma, endothelioma, mammary adenocarcinoma, and lymphoma cells. Endothelial cell monolayers have included murine microvascular(More)
The killing of GL26 and YAC-1 cells by natural killer cells (NKC) is reduced in the presence of a monolayer of endothelial cells. This reduction in cytotoxicity correlates with the degree of adhesion between the tumor cells and the endothelial monolayers. The cytotoxicity of NKC toward glioma was 10% when carried out on plastic, but a monolayer of(More)

The chick literature genre has been criticized for depicting characters who worry about their body weight and who have poor body esteem. Excerpts from two chick lit novels were(More)
