SK-MEL-28 is one of a series of melanoma cell lines established from patient-derived tumor samples. This cell line expresses mutant B-Raf (V600E) and wildtype N-Ras. It is also able to form tumors in nude mice.
This cell line was established from an axillary lymph node of a 51-year-old male of unknown ethnicity.
