The mammary epithelium undergoes cyclical periods of cellular proliferation, differentiation and regression. These processes are under the control of the hormones secreted during pregnancy, lactation and involution. Signaling pathways have been identified that connect the hormonal stimuli with the transcription of genes responsible for the determination of the cellular fate. The kinetics of induction and deinduction have suggested that cytokine-activated Stat proteins play a crucial role. Stat5… 

Figures from this paper

Overexpression and forced activation of stat5 in mammary gland of transgenic mice promotes cellular proliferation, enhances differentiation, and delays postlactational apoptosis.
TLDR
Functional observations made in cultured mammary epithelial cells and in gene knockout mice identify Stat5 as a multifunctional regulator of mammary cell proliferation, milk protein gene expression, and postlactational apoptosis.
Distinct roles of STAT3 and STAT5 in the pathogenesis and targeted therapy of breast cancer
The regulation of CCAAT/enhancer binding protein delta expression by activated stat3 /
TLDR
Inhibition of the Stat3-C/EBPS pathway by chelation of intracellular calcium inhibits the ability of mammary epithelial cells to exit the cell cycle after serum and growth factor deprivation, thus providing further evidence o f the importance of C/ EBPS in mammaries epithelial cell cycle exit.
Oncostatin M Induces Growth Arrest of Mammary Epithelium via a CCAAT / enhancer-binding Protein-dependent Pathway 1
TLDR
It is demonstrated that OSM induces up-regulation of C/EBP via a Stat3dependent pathway in mammary epithelial cells and that the growth inhibition induced by OSM depends on the presence of C-EBP, which is inversely correlated with the histological grade of malignancy.
STAT 3 Activity and Function in Cancer : Modulation by STAT 5 and miR-146 b
TLDR
Understanding the subtleties of STAT3 signaling in cancer pathogenesis will allow the development of more rational molecular approaches to cancer therapy, and will gain greater insight into the consequence ofSTAT3 activation in the biology of human cancers.

Conditional Deletion of Shp2 in the Mammary Gland Leads to Impaired Lobulo-alveolar Outgrowth and Attenuated Stat5 Activation*
TLDR
This is the first demonstration that Shp2 manipulates Stat5 and Stat3 activities reciprocally in mammary epithelial cells, providing novel insight into the complex mechanisms for regulation of various Stat family members by a cytoplasmic tyrosine phosphatase.

Suppression of epithelial apoptosis and delayed mammary gland involution in mice with a conditional knockout of Stat3.
TLDR
It is suggested that IGFBP-5 is a direct or indirect target for Stat3 and its upregulation is essential to normal involution, and the importance of a Stat factor in signaling the initiation of physiological apoptosis in vivo is demonstrated.
Stat5a is mandatory for adult mammary gland development and lactogenesis.
TLDR
It is document that Stat5a is the principal and an obligate mediator of mammopoietic and lactogenic signaling.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that genetic events that occur during the first reversible stage of mammary gland involution are controlled by local factors and mammary-derived death signals are dominant over protective effects related to systemic hormone stimulation.
STAT3 orchestrates contradictory signals in cytokine‐induced G1 to S cell‐cycle transition
TLDR
An ‘orchestrating model’ for cytokine and growth factor action is proposed in which contradictory signals are orchestrated to produce a specific effect in a target cell.
Programmed cell death during mammary tissue involution induced by weaning, litter removal, and milk stasis
TLDR
Programmed cell death in mammary tissue was studied during natural weaning in lactating mice and after litter removal or milk stasis, indicating that cell death is under local (i.e., intramammary) as well as endocrine regulation.
Stat3 as an Oncogene
STATs and gene regulation.
TLDR
The discovery of a STAT in Drosophila, and most recently in Dictyostelium discoideum, implies an ancient evolutionary origin for this dual-function set of proteins.
