The expression of two oncogenes, c-myc and c-fos, was studied in an ascitic tumour (ATPC+) at different times after implantation. The specific mRNA synthesis was analysed by Northern blot analysis. The presence of the oncogene proteins was shown by immunofluorescence using flow cytometry and referred to the distribution of the cells in the different cell phases. The results show that both oncogenes are expressed by ATPC+ tumour cells. c-myc is expressed 5, 8 and 12 days after implantation, although with a different intensity, and the protein is mainly present in S or S+G2 phase cells. The c-fos oncogene is expressed only 12 days after tumour implantation and the cells labelled with the specific antibody are mainly in G1 phase. We conclude that c-myc is principally correlated with proliferative activity, whereas c-fos is expressed by non-cycling cells.
