The migration of cells in multicell tumor spheroids.
A mathematical model is proposed to explain the observed internalization of microspheres and 3H-thymidine labelled cells in steady-state multicellular spheroids. The model uses the conventional ideas of nutrient diffusion and consumption by the cells. In addition, a very simple model of the progress of the cells through the cell cycle is considered. Cells are divided into two classes, those proliferating (being in G1, S, G2 or M phases) and those that are quiescent (being in G0). Furthermore,...Expand abstract
