Ascites tumors in CBA mice. Characterization of two new tumors, a carcinoma and a sarcoma in solid and ascites form, with regard to cell surface properties and transplantability.

Two ascites tumors in syngeneic CBA mice are described, viz., MCB 21-AA and MCB 31-AA, with their solid progenitors: A sarcoma (MCB 21-SS) and a squamous cell carcinoma (MCB 31-SC), induced by gastric feeding of 20-methylcholanthrene. The ascites tumor cells have certain characteristics in common, which they do not share with either cells from the solid… (More)
