Models of breast morphogenesis based on localization of stem cells in the developing mammary lobule.

Honeth G, Schiavinotto T, Vaggi F, Marlow R, Kanno T, Shinomiya I, Lombardi S, Buchupalli B, Graham R, Gazinska P, Ramalingam V, Burchell J, Purushotham AD, Pinder SE, Csikasz-Nagy A, Dontu G - Stem Cell Reports (2015)

Bottom Line: However, the identity of these cells is a subject of controversy and their localization in the breast epithelium is not known.In this study, we utilized a novel approach to analyze the morphogenesis of mammary lobules, by combining one-dimensional theoretical models and computer-generated 3D fractals.An increased representation of stem cells was found in smaller, less developed lobules compared to larger, more mature lobules, with marked differences in the gland of iparous versus parous women and that of BRCA1/2 mutation carriers versus non-carriers.
