comment Have there been studies done to test Immortality of Cancer Cells on culture?
@CRags See this paper. They have done genomic analysis and commented that the mutations seem to have arisen because of UV exposure. I guess there were no major chromosomal aberrations to prevent its identification as a canine derived tumour.

@ChrisStronks CTVT is not a cell line, it is a natural tumour that has become infectious (thereby making it a pathogenic parasite). A good recent example of a retrograde evolution.

I am not fully aware of the details now but I know that IFNγ signaling is involved at some step in the regulation of pigmentation.
