Surface Changes and Growth of Virus Transformed Cells

  • Michael Stoker


The idea that the abnormal social behaviour of cancer cells may be due to changes in their surfaces has stimulated research over a long period, but until recently it has been difficult to interpret the findings through lack of adequate comparability with appropriate normal cells. It is now possible however, to use cloned cell lines which can be rapidly and reliably transformed by various tumour viruses so that normal and transformed progeny from the same original parent cell can be compared under a variety of growth conditions.
