The Seed Give Forth.....

What: "The breast stem cell is like a seed that gives rise to all the ducts and milk-producing cells in the breast," Dr Lindeman said. "Stem cells are required for replenishing breast tissue during normal monthly cycles in women and for generating new breast tissue during pregnancy and lactation. It is possible that stem cells or their 'daughters' - luminal progenitor cells - may be important target cells in which genetic mishaps progressively accumulate, ultimately leading to breast cancer."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
