Ectodysplasin target gene Fgf20 regulates mammary bud growth and ductal invasion and branching during puberty

Abstract

Mammary gland development begins with the appearance of epithelial placodes that invaginate, sprout, and branch to form small arborized trees by birth. The second phase of ductal growth and branching is driven by the highly invasive structures called terminal end buds (TEBs) that form at ductal tips at the onset of puberty. Ectodysplasin (Eda), a tumor… (More)
