An immunohistological study in the human breast and the rodent breast (from inbred Ludwig/Wistar/Olac rats) was conducted with the use of a murine monoclonal antibody, which reacts with the common acute lymphoblastic antigen, a glycosylated polypeptide of a molecular weight of 100,000. The epitope, as recognized by this antibody, is expressed on myoepithelial cells of the normal human and rat breasts and was studied in the developing rodent mammary gland. Ultrastructural studies in the normal… CONTINUE READING
