Intravascular location of breast cancer cells after spontaneous metastasis to the lung.
In this study, we examined the hypothesis that early pulmonary metastases form within the vasculature. We introduced primary tumors in immunocompromised mice by subcutaneous injection of murine breast carcinoma cells (4T1) expressing green fluorescent protein. Isolated ventilated and perfused lungs from these mice were examined at various times after tumor formation by fluorescent microscopy. The vasculature was visualized by counterstaining with 1,1-dioctadecyl-3,3,3',3'-tetramethylindocarbo...Expand abstract
