The mouse mammary gland provides a powerful model system for studying processes involved in epithelial tissue development. Although markers that enrich for mammary stem cells and progenitors have been identified, our understanding of the mammary developmental hierarchy remains incomplete. We used the MMTV promoter linked to the reverse tetracycline(More)
The mouse mammary gland has emerged as a model system for studying processes involved in the development of epithelial tissues. Current evidence suggests the existence of a differentiation hierarchy in the mammary gland, consisting of a stem cell capable of reconstituting the tissue, progenitors with the capacity to produce specific functional cell types,(More)
