Adhesion of Malignant and Nonmalignant Cells to Cultured Embryonic Substrates I

To study adhesion, which is probably the initial step in malignant invasion, we associated tissue culture fragments with living substrates in vitro. Malignant HeLa, hepatoma, and PY cells, as well as nonmalignant BHK cells, were transplanted into cultured chick blastoderms and organ fragments from chick embryos. Adhesion was evaluated by time-lapse… CONTINUE READING
