Progesterone induces side-branching of the ductal epithelium in the mammary glands of peripubertal mice



Progesterone induces side-branching of the ductal epithelium in the mammary glands of peripubertal mice



Journal of Endocrinology 167(1): 39-52



Development of the functional secretory epithelium in the mammary gland of the female mouse requires the elongation of the anlage through the mammary fat pad to form the primary/secondary ductal network from which tertiary ductal side-branches and lobuloalveoli develop.
