AsisAs third embryonic niche for malignant growth the brain vesicles were investigated [26]. Melanoma cells were transplanted into the developing rhombencephalon (hindbrain) of the stage 12?13 HH embryo. At this stage rhombencephalic neural crest cell emigration is already completed. The location corresponds to brain liquor seeding in stage IV melanoma patients, which is associated with extremely poor outcome. In this particular niche, the transplanted melanoma cells developed a loosely formed tumor containing capillaries (not shown) after 4 days, completely destroying the dorsal roof plate and invading the surrounding mesenchymal host tissue (Figure 3J, K). Immunohistochemistry with anti-HMB45 and anti-MIB1 revealed proliferation in about 90 of the invasively growing melanoma cells (MIB1-positive, invading melanoma cells are depicted in Figure 3L). Interestingly the ventral differentiated neural plate of the rhombencephalon was excluded from invasion. Single MIB1-positive melanoma cells could be detected in blood vessels among host blood cells (Figure 3L), demonstrating that active haematogenous spreading of the transplanted melanoma cells occurred. Thus the rhombencephalic embryonic brain vesicle is an adequate model for induction and biological behavior of melanoma cells during brain metastasis. In our previous publication [26], the focus was on different growth phases of melanoma cells. We showed that in addition to in vitro invasion (Boyden chamber and human epidermal skinMCF7 Breast Cancer Cells DprE1-IN-2 site Behave Differently in the Rhombencephalon than Melanoma CellsTo analyze, whether the rhombencephalon was a transplantation site that specifically allowed melanoma cells to form invasive tumors, we injected MCF7 breast cancer cells (as cell suspension) into the same embryonic compartment (n = 7 embryos) and allowed further incubation for 96 h. Figure 5 displays two exemplary embryos transplanted with MCF7 cells. To our surprise, we encountered a different histological outcome when compared to the melanoma cells. MCF7 cells had formed compact stretched epithelial tumors in the roof plate, clearly demarcated from the host tissue (Figure 5A). Centrally the MCF7 tumors had areas with necrotic and apoptotic cells (Figure 5C). Invasion of MCF7 cells occurred in small clusters of cells (Figures 5B and C, arrows). In one case, densely aggregated MCF7 cells collectively penetrated the roof plate (not shown); invasion of the roof plate of single MCF7 cells (a phenomenon frequently observed for melanoma cells in the same context) was not found. The MCF7 cells showed less MIB1-reactivity (30?0 MIB1-positive cells; Figures 5B and D) than the melanoma cells; invading MCF7 cells were 307538-42-7 web mostly MIB1-negative (as opposed to invading melanoma cells; compare Figure 3L). Interestingly, even some obviously apoptotic MCF7 cells (with nuclear fragmentation) were still MIB1-positive.
