The mouse mammary end bud: its role in ductal morphogenesis and aging



The mouse mammary end bud: its role in ductal morphogenesis and aging



Dissertation Abstracts International, B Sciences and Engineering 45(4): 1096



Investigation of the cellular and structural basis for the role of end buds in elongation of the mammary ducts revealed that cells of the epithelial monolayer covering the end bud tip ('cap cells') show few intracellular junctions or specialized features and form a stem population for ductal morphogenesis.
