To collect conditioned media CM, the cells were grown for 5 d in complete media, rinsed twice for 10 min in DMEM, and incubated for 3 additional d in serum-free medium.
Luciferase induction upon dox withdrawal was used to seek inducible clones among the stable transfectants.
The size of the tumors was determined at scheduled intervals by external measurements of the tumors in two dimensions with a caliper. The accuracy of the calculations was checked comparing the calculated volume and the weight of the tumor at harvesting point.
Metastasis experiments were performed injecting 106 cells in the tail vein of athymic swiss mice 12 animals.
Half of those received a dox supply after the injection while the other half received no treatment. At the end of the experiments 3 wk for metastasis experiments animals were sacrificed and the tumors or lungs dissected.
One-half was immediately fixed in Bouin's solution Sigma. Endogenous peroxidases were quenched in 1. The microvessel score for each tumor was expressed as the mean of counts obtained in at least three separated HPF.
Angiogenesis assay In vitro endothelial cell migrations were performed as described previously Volpert et al.
