The morphological characteristics of two rat tumor cell lines were studied by means of scanning electron microscopy. While the ASML-cells (Ascites, Solid, Metastases, Lung) when spread via the lymphatic vessels form metastases in the lung, the AS-cells (Ascites, Solid) do not form secondary tumors. The ASML-cells do not attach on glass or plastic but grow in suspension; AS-cells, can be cultivated as monolayers. The ASML-cells form loosely packed clusters when they are shaken in a gyratory… CONTINUE READING
