Metastasis formation consists of the facility of malig nant cells to invade adjoining tissue and to penetrate into lymphatic or blood circulatory platforms, or either, and to unfold to close or far away websites to shape new tumor colonies. in the meantime, examine on metastasis is receiving a lot attention.

Balmain et al. 1984; Brown et al. 1986; Wiseman et al. 1986; Leon et a1. 1988). Natural murine benign tumors also were found to carry activated ras oncogenes (Reynolds et al. 1986). In B16 melanoma variants with low and high metastatic potential, expression of Ki-ras was not found to be changed (Kris et al. 1985). On the other hand, Ki-ras was activated in metastasis of a mouse T lymphoma, while it was not in the primary tumor (Vousden and Marshall 1984). Even more interestingly, progression of benign skin papilloma was claimed to be correlated with the activated ras oncogene becoming either amplified or homozygous (Quintanilla et al.
