Acral Melanoma Cell Line Catalog

In a collaborative effort to facilitate research focused on acral melanoma, MRA has created and annotated an Acral Melanoma Cell Line Catalog from various institutions worldwide. The catalog includes cell lines created by researchers at University of Colorado, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Wistar Institute, Yale University, University of Zurich, the Queensland Institute of Medical Research in Australia and more. 

The catalog will serve as a launching pad for researchers who want to study acral melanoma – providing easier access to basic information and helping them to avoid the timely process of creating new cell lines from scratch. In addition, this effort fosters collaboration, transparency, and will help to facilitate synergistic efforts and mitigate duplication of effort. 

MRA’s Acral Melanoma Cell Line Catalog provides basic information on each cell line, such as the oncogenomic profile, or what cancer-causing gene alterations are present, and information on the different clinical features of each cell line. The catalog also includes contact information and details on how to access each cell line. The MRA aims to keep updating the list of available acral melanoma cell lines as they become available.
