Cyclin D1 provides a link between development and oncogenesis in the retina and breast
Mice lacking cyclin D1 have been generated by gene targeting in embryonic stem cells. Cyclin D1-deficient animals develop to term but show reduced body size, reduced viability, and symptoms ofExpand

Estrogenic effects of genistein on the growth of estrogen receptor-positive human breast cancer (MCF-7) cells in vitro and in vivo.
Genistein, found in soy products, is a phytochemical with several biological activities. In the current study, our research focused on the estrogenic and proliferation-inducing activity of genistein.Expand

Hormone replacement therapy with estrogen or estrogen plus medroxyprogesterone acetate is associated with increased epithelial proliferation in the normal postmenopausal breast.
The relative effects of postmenopausal hormone replacement therapy (HRT) with estrogen alone vs. estrogen+progestin on breast cell proliferation and on breast cancer risk are controversial. AExpand

Radiation acts on the microenvironment to affect breast carcinogenesis by distinct mechanisms that decrease cancer latency and affect tumor type.
Tissue microenvironment is an important determinant of carcinogenesis. We demonstrate that ionizing radiation, a known carcinogen, affects cancer frequency and characteristics by acting on theExpand

Perfluorooctanoic acid effects on steroid hormone and growth factor levels mediate stimulation of peripubertal mammary gland development in C57BL/6 mice.
Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) is a synthetic, widely used perfluorinated carboxylic acid and a persistent environmental pollutant. It is an agonist of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alphaExpand

Fibronectin and the alpha(5)beta(1) integrin are under developmental and ovarian steroid regulation in the normal mouse mammary gland.
Extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins have been shown to regulate mammary epithelial cell proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis in vitro. However, little is known about the hormonal regulationExpand

Estrogen mediates mammary epithelial cell proliferation in serum-free culture indirectly via mammary stroma-derived hepatocyte growth factor.
Epithelial-stromal cell interactions are important for normal development and function of the mouse mammary gland. The steroid hormone estrogen is required for epithelial cell proliferation andExpand

Pubertal Exposure to High Fat Diet Causes Mouse Strain-dependent Alterations in Mammary Gland Development and Estrogen Responsiveness
Objective:Increased adolescent obesity rates in the United States are a significant public health concern. Obesity or increased adiposity during puberty in girls, an important period of breastExpand

Mammary Gland Growth and Development from the Postnatal Period to Postmenopause: Ovarian Steroid Receptor Ontogeny and Regulation in the Mouse
Ovarian steroid hormones play a critical role inregulating mammary gland growth and development. Themammary gland sequentially acquires and cyclicallyexhibits proliferative responses to estrogenExpand

Host microenvironment in breast cancer development: Epithelial-cell–stromal-cell interactions and steroid hormone action in normal and cancerous mammary gland
Mammary epithelial cells comprise the functional component of the normal gland and are the major target for carcinogenesis in mammary cancer. However, the stromal compartment of the normal gland andExpand
