205 Interaction in Culture Between Normal and Tumor Cells of Rats H. Katsuta and T. Takaoka VHS or B/W-Sound-16

Interaction of hepatoma (AH-7979) cells and normal liver cells. The interaction over a 5 day period is as follows:

1. Hepatoma cells adhere to and send out projections toward normal liver cells.
2. Intense bubbling of the cytoplasm of the liver cells.
3. Normal liver cells die at the end of a 5 day period.

The interaction of hepatoma cells with fibroblasts is as follows:
