SSZ treatment slows spheroid growth but induces tumor escape by elongated cells. A, Representative maximum intensity projections of imaged hemispheroids for vehicle- and SSZ-treated spheroids. Scale bar, 200 μm. B, Relative spheroid volume for vehicle- and SSZ-treated spheroids. C, Cumulative escaped cells per surface area of imaged hemispheroid. D, Mean escaped cell sphericity per day. B–D, Shaded areas represent SEM.

This work describes a readily implementable method that allows for the isolation of individual live tumor cells of interest for downstream analyses, and provides the single-cell transcriptomes of melanoma cells at distinct invasive states, both of which open avenues for in-depth investigations into the transcriptional regulation of the earliest phases of metastasis.
