Fibrinolytic activity of cultured cells derived during ethylnitrosourea-induced carcinogenesis of rat brain.

Hince TA, Roscoe JP - Br. J. Cancer (1978)

Bottom Line: Cell lines derived from normal adult rat brain showed only low levels of activity.The degree of lysis produced by a cell line was dependent on the average number of cells per colony, and a different pattern of response was observed for tumour and normal cell lines.Many cell lines derived from rat brains at 57-60 (E7), 90-91 (E8) and 111-112 (E6) days after transplacental exposure to ethylnitrosourea showed fibrinolytic activity, and in the latter group the close association with growth in agar and tumourigenicity was also demonstrated.

ABSTRACT
Using a fibrin-agarose-overlay technique, high levels of plasminogen-dependent fibrinolytic activity have been demonstrated in cell lines derived from an ethylnitrosourea-induced glioma of the rat brain. Cell lines derived from normal adult rat brain showed only low levels of activity. The degree of lysis produced by a cell line was dependent on the average number of cells per colony, and a different pattern of response was observed for tumour and normal cell lines. A good positive correlation existed between the level of fibrinolytic activity, growth in agar and tumourigenicity of a cell line. Fibrinolytic activity was associated with cell lines derived at various times in the latent period, before the appearance of a visible tumour. Many cell lines derived from rat brains at 57-60 (E7), 90-91 (E8) and 111-112 (E6) days after transplacental exposure to ethylnitrosourea showed fibrinolytic activity, and in the latter group the close association with growth in agar and tumourigenicity was also demonstrated. Results from cell lines derived in the E7 and E8 experiments indicated that the possession of fibrinolytic activity preceded the ability of cells to form colonies in agar.
