Human breast carcinoma cells cultured in the presence of serum shed membrane vesicles rich in gelatinolytic activities.

Abstract

Human breast carcinoma cell lines, 8701-BC and MCF-7, in culture shed membrane vesicles with similar morphology. Vesicles shed in the presence of serum were rich in gelatinolytic activities, but not those obtained in the absence of serum. Zymographic analyses of the vesicles from 8701-BC and MCF-7, using gelatin as substrate, showed three predominant… (More)
