Lucke carcinoma


Lucke carcinoma
A renal carcinoma, caused by a herpesvirus, in frogs; it aroused interest because its abnormal growth appears to be dependent on a restricted temperature range. Nuclei from these cells give rise to normal frogs if transplanted into enucleated eggs, giving support to the epigenesis theories of neoplasia.
