The role of the subependymal plate in glial tumorigenesis.
We have studied the sequential morphological events of glial tumorigenesis in neonatal dogs, using high titer subgroup C Bratislava-77 Avian Sarcoma Virus, given as 0.01 ml by intraventricular inoculation. The cells of the subependymal plate are those which seem to form the gliomas; cytoplasmic alterations are evident within 24 h after inoculation and microfoci of gliomas, contiguous with the subependymal plate of the lateral ventricles, are visible within 7 days. Independent tumors are present by the 10th post-inoculation day. These studies support the hypothesis of Globus and Kuhlenbeck, which implicates the cells of the subependymal palte in glial tumorigenesis.
