Basal-like breast cancer has been reported to be the most aggressive and deadly carcinoma sub-type. Patients diagnosed with this subtype have a less than 50% five-year survival. In addition, many studies have reported that this sub-type is more prevalent in specific ethnic groups and is believed to be a key factor that drives certain ethnic disparities in mortality. In order to effectively study this sub-type and determine unique gene expression and biochemical pathways which sustain this cancer's growth, we sought to identify human breast cancer cell lines that represent a model for the basal-like subtype. Here, we report our findings which indicate the African American cell line CRL-2335 is a true representative of basal-like breast carcinoma.
