Comparison of the metastatic properties of B16 melanoma clones isolated from cultured cell lines, subcutaneous tumors, and individual lung metastases.


Tumors produced by s.c. injection of uncloned B16 melanoma cell lines contain clonal tumor cell subpopulations with widely differing metastatic properties, including clones that are nonmetastatic. Similar metastatic heterogeneity exists in clones isolated from the same cell lines cultured in vitro. In B16 melanoma sublines (B16-BL6, B16-BV8, and B16-BP8… (More)
