MAMMALIAN PHENOTYPE - ANNOTATIONS

The Mouse Adult Gross Anatomy Ontology and Mammalian Phenotype Ontology are downloaded weekly from the Mouse Genome Informatics databases at Jackson Laboratories (ftp://ftp.informatics.jax.org/pub/reports/index.html).

Accession:MP:0013782 term browser browse the term
Definition:any structural anomaly of the unique club-shaped epithelial structure that develops at the tip of the mammary duct at the onset of puberty (approximately 3 weeks of age in mouse) under the action of circulating hormones; terminal end buds (TEBs) consist of an outer layer of undifferentiated myoepithelial progenitor cells (cap cells), and a multilayered inner core of luminal epithelial cells (body) fated to form the walls of the ductal lumen; both layers have high rates of mitosis, consistent with a motile organ dedicated to ductal morphogenesis; TEBs proliferate, ramify, and actively invade the fad pad to allow the formation of a complex branching structure; this process of branching morphogenesis concludes at about 10-12 weeks of age in mouse, when TEBs have traversed the length of the fat pad and a fully developed ductal tree has formed
Synonyms:exact_synonym: abnormal mammary duct TEB morphology
