Heterogeneous pattern of gene expression in cloned cell lines established from a rat transplantable osteosarcoma lung metastatic nodule.

We have established three cloned cell lines (COS1NR, COS2NR and COS4NR) from the lung metastatic nodule of a highly metastatic variant of rat transplantable osteosarcoma, C-SLM. All three clones shared the same morphological characteristics and tumorigenicity, but their growth rates in vitro and metastatic ability in vivo differed from each other. Single-strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP) analysis revealed all three clones to have the same p53 gene mutation and parent C-SLM tumor. On the other hand, Northern blot analysis showed a different pattern of expression for the genes, c-fos, c-jun, c-Ha-ras, transin (rat stromelysin), bone Gla protein (osteocalsin) and nm23/NDP kinase. These results indicate the presence of a heterogeneous cell population in terms of the different pattern of gene expression in a lung metastatic nodule of rat osteosarcoma and the present newly established cell lines will be useful for further investigation of the biological behavior of osteosarcomas.[1]
