Stromal Density Regulates Stemness and Cancer Risk in Mammary Tissue

January 18, 2024

Concept: Progesterone-induced RANK signaling and integrin mechanosensing drive basal progenitor expansion.

Impact: Targeting RANK may prevent tumor development or progression in patients with dense breast tissue.
