The mammary fat pad is essential for developmentof the mammary epithelium, providing signals thatmediate ductal morphogenesis and, probably, alveolardifferentiation. The “cleared” fat pad is often used as a transplantation site.Considering the crucial role of the fat pad, itsproperties have received relatively little attentionfrom researchers in the field. Some of the questionswhose investigation is pertinent to understanding both normalmammary development and carcinogenesis are outlined inthis… CONTINUE READING
