A new cell line (TtT/GF) established from a murine pituitary thyrotropic tumor having characteristics similar to those of pituitary folliculo-stellate cell (FS cell) was implanted into nude mice together with cells from a rat pituitary somatotrophic tumor cell line (MtT/S) to determine whether the former enhances pituitary tumor growth. For as long as 2-3 mo after implantation, MtT/S cells implanted either alone or together with fibroblasts formed either no tumors or only very small tumors in… CONTINUE READING
