31 NMR In Vivo Studies of Human Renal Cell and Transitional Cell Carcinomas Xenografted into Nude Mice
31 P NMR is of particular interest for tumor investigations, since various neoplasms can differ from normal cells in pH, energy metabolism, and phospholipid turnover (proliferation rate). Human tumor cells can be studied as cultures in an appropriate matrix or as solid tumors (xenografts) in the nude mouse.
