Colonial morphology of tumour cells and susceptibility to cytolysis by tumour necrosis factor. The role of cellular fibronectin deposition in the extracellular matrix.

Abstract

The tumour cell lines U937A and L929 form large, loosely packed colonies in vitro and can be killed by the cytokine tumour necrosis factor (TNF). In contrast, their TNF-resistant mutants U937A/R and L929/R form tightly packed colonies. Since cells which form loose colonies have increased metastatic potential it is important to understand the factors… (More)
