- The MAPK(ERK-1,2) pathway integrates distinct and antagonistic signals from TGFalpha and FGF7 in morphogenesis of mouse mammary epitheliumJimmie E Fata
Life Sciences Division, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, CA 94720, USA
Dev Biol 306:193-207. 2007..Our findings indicate that expression of morphogenetic effectors, proliferation, and cell-type decisions during mammary organoid morphogenesis are intimately dependent on the duration of activation of MAPK(ERK1,2) activation...
- GATA-3 links tumor differentiation and dissemination in a luminal breast cancer modelHosein Kouros-Mehr
Department of Anatomy, University of California, San Francisco, 513 Parnassus Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94143 0452, USA
Cancer Cell 13:141-52. 2008..Rather, malignant progression occurred with an expanding GATA-3-negative tumor cell population. These data indicate that GATA-3 regulates tumor differentiation and suppresses tumor dissemination in breast cancer...

Department of Anatomy and Program in Cell Biology, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, CA 94143, USA
Dev Cell 14:570-81. 2008..Significantly, we observed that normal epithelium and neoplastic hyperplasias are organized similarly, suggesting common mechanisms of epithelial growth...
- Mammary collective cell migration involves transient loss of epithelial features and individual cell migration within the epitheliumAndrew J Ewald
Department of Anatomy, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, CA 94143, USA
J Cell Sci 125:2638-54. 2012..Our data suggest that reductions in polarity and adhesion during breast cancer progression might reflect partial recapitulation of a normal developmental program...
- Visualizing stromal cell dynamics in different tumor microenvironments by spinning disk confocal microscopyMikala Egeblad

Dis Model Mech 1:155-67; discussion 165. 2008..The techniques are not limited to investigations in cancer, but could give new insights into cell behavior more broadly in development and disease...
- Genetic mosaic analysis reveals FGF receptor 2 function in terminal end buds during mammary gland branching morphogenesisPengfei Lu
Department of Anatomy and Program in Developmental Biology, University of California at San Francisco, San Francisco, CA 94143 0452, USA
Dev Biol 321:77-87. 2008..Together, our data demonstrate that Fgfr2 functions in the proliferating and invading TEBs, but it is not required in the mature ducts of the pubertal mammary gland...
