Changes in mouse mammary epithelial cell size during mammary gland development



Changes in mouse mammary epithelial cell size during mammary gland development



Cell Differentiation 6(1): 1-8



During early pregnancy, the mean vol. of mouse mammary epithelial cells (MMEC) begins to enlarge, resulting in a 21-fold cell vol. increase by late lactation (day 18). Progressive increases in mean MMEC vol. during late pregnancy and throughout lactation result from the appearance and progressive hypertrophy of secretory alveolar cells. Involution of the mammary tissue brings about a precipitous decrease both in the av.
