Recently, the tissue origin of MDA-MB-435 cell line has been the subject of considerable debate. In this study, we set out to determine whether MDA-MB-435-DTP cells shown to express melanoma-specific genes were identical to various other MDA-MB-435 cell stocks worldwide. CGH-microarray, genetic polymorphism genotyping, microsatellite fingerprint analysis and/or chromosomal number confirmed that the MDA-MB-435 cells maintained at the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center (MDA-MB-435-LCC) are…

LCC15-MB Cells are MDA-MB-435: A Review of Misidentified Breast and prostate cell lines
TLDR
Current stocks of the LCC15-MB cell line were found to be genetically matched to the MDA-MB-435 cell line from the Lombardi Cancer Center using comparative genomic hybridisation, DNA microsatellite analysis and chromosomal number.
MDA-MB-435 and M14 cell lines: identical but not M14 melanoma?
TLDR
Evidence from the literature is presented here that is inconsistent with both lines being of M14 melanoma origin, but rather is consistent with both cell linesBeing of MDA-MB-435 breast cancer origin.
Density-dependent lineage instability of MDA-MB-435 breast cancer cells
TLDR
The results indicate that the three breast cancer cell lines are primarily of epithelial phenotype, however, MDA-MB-435 cells revealed lineage infidelity in dense cultures with a gain in melanocytic phenotype.
MDA-MB-435 cells are derived from M14 Melanoma cells––a loss for breast cancer, but a boon for melanoma research
TLDR
It is shown that the MDA-MB-435 and M14 cell lines are essentially identical with respect to cytogenetic characteristics as well as gene expression patterns and that the minor differences found can be explained by phenotypic and genotypic clonal drift.
MDA-MB-435: The questionable use of a melanoma cell line as a model for human breast cancer is ongoing
TLDR
In September 2006, Rae et al. provided unmistakable evidence that the MDA-MB-435 human breast cancer cell line is identical to the M14 human melanoma cell line, but this mix-up has gained a new aspect in 2007.
Authentication of M14 melanoma cell line proves misidentification of MDA‐MB‐435 breast cancer cell line
TLDR
This work demonstrates conclusively that M14 is the authentic cell line and MDA‐MB‐435 is misidentified, and with clear provenance information and authentication testing of early samples, it is possible to resolve debates regarding the origins of problematic cell lines that are widely used in cancer research.
Functional genomics identifies ABCC3 as a mediator of taxane resistance in HER2-amplified breast cancer.
TLDR
A functional genomics approach using a well-characterized panel of breast cancer cell lines to identify putative biomarkers of resistance to antimitotic agents such as paclitaxel and monomethyl-auristatin-E (MMAE) shows that amplification of ABCC3 is present in primary breast tumors and that it occurs predominantly in HER2-amplified and luminal tumors.
Functional elucidation and methylation‐mediated downregulation of ITGA5 gene in breast cancer cell line MDA‐MB‐468
TLDR
The methylation status in the region around transcriptional start site of ITGA5 gene was increased in MDA‐MB‐468 cells, and overexpression of integrin α5 resulted in cell growth inhibition and could be reversed by adhesion to fibronectin.
Minocycline impairs TNF-α-induced cell fusion of M13SV1-Cre cells with MDA-MB-435-pFDR1 cells by suppressing NF-κB transcriptional activity and its induction of target-gene expression of fusion-relevant factors
TLDR
Investigation of how minocycline interferes with the TNF-α induced signal transduction pathway confirmed that only NF-κB inhibition was successful in inhibiting the T NF-α-induced cell fusion process.

Further evidence to support the melanocytic origin of MDA-MB-435
TLDR
Investigation of tissue of origin of two sublines of the cell line MDA-MB-435 suggests that this cell line is indeed of melanoma origin.
Lineage Infidelity of MDA-MB-435 Cells
TLDR
It is demonstrated that MDA-MB-435 cells express breast-specific or epithelial-specific markers and is most likely a breast epithelial cell line that has undergone lineage infidelity.
Karyotypic variation between independently cultured strains of the cell line MCF-7 identified by multicolour fluorescence in situ hybridization.
TLDR
Several common chromosomal translocations were identified in all variants of the cell lines and a significant number of unique abnormalities were identified, characterising each of the variants studied.
MDA435/LCC6 and MDA435/LCC6MDR1: ascites models of human breast cancer.
TLDR
These ascites models may be a viable alternative to the murine leukaemia ascites and, in conjunction with other breast cancer cell lines, facilitate the in vitro and in vivo screening of new cytotoxic drugs and drug combinations.
Cell line designation change: multidrug-resistant cell line in the NCI anticancer screen.
TLDR
It is concluded that the preponderance of the information available suggests that the MCF-7/ADR-RES multidrug-resistant cell line that is included in the DTP screening program is not related to the MCf-7 cell lines that is a part of the screening panel.
Multiple phenotypic divergence of mammary adenocarcinoma cell clones
TLDR
The results suggest that simultaneous, independent divergence of several phenotypes from a single cloned cell occurred to form a mixed cell population containing cells with independently segregated, unrelated phenotypes, probably the result of tumor cell divergence.
Systematic variation in gene expression patterns in human cancer cell lines
TLDR
Using cDNA microarrays to explore the variation in expression of approximately 8,000 unique genes among the 60 cell lines used in the National Cancer Institute's screen for anti-cancer drugs provided a novel molecular characterization of this important group of human cell lines and their relationships to tumours in vivo.
Gene expression profiling of tumor xenografts: In vivo analysis of organ‐specific metastasis
TLDR
Immunohistochemistry showed that the CD73 protein is also upregulated in primary tumors of this cell line and that its expression is elevated in the lymph node metastases, raising the hypothesis that tumors preferentially metastasize to lymph nodes by using CD73 to mimic part of the lymphocyte homing process.
