Mammary Epithelial Cell Research

Mammary epithelial progenitor cells undergo differentiation to form luminal and myoepithelial cells, the two major epithelial cell types of the mammary gland. See MoreExpand isolated mammary progenitor cells as monolayer cultures, evaluate them in mammary colony-forming units (Ma-CFUs) or three-dimensional gel-based cultures, or generate mammosphere or tumorsphere cultures to provide a more physiologically relevant environment. For mammosphere and tumorsphere cultures, use the most published commercially available medium designed for this purpose and study cells isolated from normal and cancerous breast tissue.
