Foreign body (FB)-induced murine sarcoma cells and advanced preneoplastic cells as well as normal fibroblasts produce fibronectin (FN) in primary culture; cells at early preneoplasia do not. Hence, the neoplastic properties of FB-induced sarcomas do not depend on absence of FN. Temporary FN repression during early preneoplasia is associated with certain phenotypic cell characteristics.
