A highly metastatic breast cancer cell line, 4T1, was used to generate stable Wnt5a expressing and vector only control cells. Cells were generated using lentivirus infection and selection with blasticidin. Expression of Wnt5a was confirmed using western blot. Cell behaviour was characterized. Wnt5a expressing cells exhibited reduced migration in a transwell assay and reduced metastasis in a tail vein injection assay. Growth was not significantly affected.
