Kathleen A. O'Leary, Michael P. Shea, Stephanie Salituro, Courtney E. Blohm, Linda A. Schuler
2017 Stem Cell Reports  
Hormones drive mammary development and function and play critical roles in breast cancer.  ...  Our findings demonstrate that PRL can powerfully influence the epithelial hierarchy alone and temper the actions of ovarian steroids, which may underlie its role in the development of breast cancer.  ...  Mirroring the epidemiologic data establishing that the relationship of PRL levels to breast cancer in women is independent from estrogen (Tworoger and Hankinson, 2008) , cancers in NRL-PRL females can  ...
