Correlation between growth control, neoplastic potential and endogenous connexin43 expression in HeLa cell lines: implications for tumor progression.

Abstract

A HeLa cell line, obtained from the ATCC, was cloned and found to exhibit a spectrum of in vitro and in vivo growth characteristics as well as variable expression of endogenous connexin43 (Cx43), a widely expressed gap junction protein implicated in growth control. The majority of clones expressed functional Cx43, which contrasted with previous studies… (More)
