Influence of cell dissociation procedures on the tumorigenicity of Simian Virus 40 transformed fibroblasts

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Mouse fibroblasts transformed by Simian Virus 40 (SV40) were examined for tumor forming ability in syngeneic BALB/c mice following dissociation from tissue culture dishes by two procedures. A significantly greater in vivo proliferative capacity was observed for cells dissociated by the tryspin-EDTA procedure, with the injected cell dose for tumor production in 50 percent of recipient mice (the TPD$sub 50$) being 16-fold lower than the TPD$sub 50$ for cells dissociated by the EDTA procedure. Host immunosuppression with 300 rad whole-body $gamma$ irradiation led to a significant 7-fold decrease in the TPD$sub 50$ for cells dissociated by the EDTA procedure, while ... continued below
