Proliferative activity and branching morphogenesis in the human prostate: a closer look at pre- and postnatal prostate growth.

Abstract

BACKGROUND To gain further insight into the molecular cell biologic features of prostate development, we investigated the proliferative activity of prostate epithelial and stromal cells and their topographic relationship with neuroendocrine (NE) cell distribution and regional heterogeneity. METHODS Consecutive sections from 43 prostates taken during… (More)
