    When basement membrane is coinjectcd with tumor cells, growth can be accelerated some three- to eightfold. Approximale~ytwice as many vessels per area are observed in thc matrigel growth-stimulatedtumors versus tumors grown in the ahsencc of matrigel (1 8). Many Iiunian tumors are difficult to grow in inice either tts minced pieces or single cells.

    The main molecules involved in the interactions among leukocytes, endothelial cells, and extracellular matrix proteins are summarized in Table 1. Descriptions of their structural as well as functional properties have been addressed in detail in recent, ~ o ~ p r e h e n s ireviews ve (1-6). The transition from a circulating leukocyte to a tissue-infiltrating leukocyte requires a series of coordinated events. First, when an appropriate stimulus induces the endothelium to express selectins and to display ligands for leukocyte selectins,circulating leukocytes slow down and roll over the e n d o ~ ~ e lsurface.
