The Seed Give Forth.....

a: Breast stem cell ~
b: a seed

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."
