Morphology of ATCC® HTB-26
What is the morphology of ATCC® HTB-26 ™, MDA-MB-231 cells?

The ATCC® HTB-26 ™ cell line is epithelial-like. The cells are somewhat spindle-shaped (long and thin) especially at subconfluence. Some cells in the culture usually remain rounded. There are always floaters. A photomicrograph of this cell line is available in the ATCC® HTB-26 ™ product description on the ATCC website.
