This review presents an atlas of the histology of the normal physiological states of the human breast including prenatal, prepubertal, and pubertal development, adult resting gland, pregnancy, lactation, and postinvolution. The aim is to produce a pictorial overview of the main stages in development and the common findings in the adult that are considered to be within the range of normality. Unlike inbred strains of animals, in humans it is clear that the chronology of ductal and lobular… Expand
Physiology and Developmental Stages of the Breast
TLDR
Understanding of breast development allows better understanding of pathophysiological processes driving diseases of the breast, which allows better diagnosis and treatment for their patients and for clinicians, constant research and education is necessary. Expand
Development and Pathology of the Equine Mammary Gland
  • K. Hughes
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of Mammary Gland Biology and Neoplasia
  • 2020
TLDR
This review examines the prenatal development of the equine mammary gland and the striking degree to which the tissue undergoes postnatal development associated with the reproductive cycle. Expand
The Mammary Glands of Macaques
TLDR
The normal biology and physiology of the mammary gland in macaques is described, including the typical histologic appearance across the life span (development, reproductive maturity, lactation, and senescence), as well as systemic and local hormonal regulators of mammary glands proliferation, differentiation, and function. Expand
Anatomy of the human mammary gland: Current status of knowledge
TLDR
The current status of knowledge of the normal macro‐ and micro‐anatomy of the human mammary gland and the distinct changes it undergoes during the key developmental stages that characterize it are presented, from embryonic life through to post‐menopausal age. Expand
Anatomy of female puberty: The clinical relevance of developmental changes in the reproductive system
TLDR
The ability to recognize normal pubertal anatomy and distinguish between estrogen and androgen effects is important in the ability to diagnose and treat disorders of sex development, precocious puberty, pubertAL delay, and menstrual irregularities in children and adolescents. Expand
Embryonic Mammary Gland Development; a Domain of Fundamental Research with High Relevance for Breast Cancer Research
TLDR
This issue underrepresents insights in prenatal mammary development in monotremes, marsupials, and placentals other than mice and rabbit, including human. Expand
The Mammary Gland: An Overview
TLDR
The mammary gland is a tissue that must function properly for survival of most mammals and understanding the processes of normal breast development is imperative for prevention of environmental influences on late life disease, altered breast timing during puberty, and lactation. Expand
Overview of Mammary Gland Development: A Comparison of Mouse and Human.
TLDR
The parallels and contrasts in mouse mammary gland and human breast morphogenesis from an early embryonic phase through to puberty, adulthood, pregnancy, parturition, and lactation, and finally the regressive stage of involution are described. Expand
The Onset and Maintenance of Human Lactation and its Endocrine Regulation
TLDR
In this chapter, the key events during breast growth, lactation and maternal adaptation, and their endocrine regulation are summarized. Expand
Human Mammary Epithelial Stem/Progenitor Cells
TLDR
The full picture of the human mammary hierarchy is still incomplete, but it is instructive for the understanding of heterogeneity in breast cancers and how this may relate to patient treatments and outcomes. Expand

TLDR
The macroscopic architecture of the mammary epithelial tree was identified and correlated with the histological appearance of material excised from defined regions of the breast preparations, and less‐well‐defined multilayered regions were observed in some areas. Expand

The results of these studies support a role for the ER gene in early as well as pubescent breast development, and also in normal cyclical and abnormal cell proliferation in the terminal-duct-lobular-units (TDLU) of adult women. Expand

TLDR
The sexual dimorphism in the embryonic development of mouse mammary glands is caused by their suppression in males and not by their stimulation in female embryos. Expand
