MDA-MB-231 is an epithelial-like breast cancer cell line originating from pleural effusions of a Caucasian breast cancer patient. It exhibits aneuploidy with a near-triploid range of chromosome counts (modal number = 64, range = 52 to 68). This cell line lacks normal chromosomes N8 and N15 and contains eleven stable rearranged marker chromosomes, along with unassignable chromosomes. Trisomy is observed in most autosomes. The MDA-MB-231 cells appear spindle-shaped, elongated, and thin when reaching subconfluence, while some cells retain a rounded morphology in culture.

The MDA-MB-231 cell line has several valuable applications in cancer research. It can be used to establish a xenograft model, forming poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma in ALS-treated BALB/c mice or nude mice. This cell line is particularly useful for studying cancer metastasis and investigating the impact of potential inhibitors on human breast cancer cells. Additionally, researchers can explore its efficacy in inducing apoptosis and evaluate its anticancer activities. The versatility of MDA-MB-231 makes it an important tool for advancing our understanding of breast cancer and developing therapeutic strategies.
