Abstract:
Stem cells play a vital role in the development and maintenance of normal tissues and e hypothesised to be involved in carcinogenesis. Side Population (SP) cells have been identified in both normal and cancerous tissue and are a putative stem cell population characterised by expression of ABCG2. To date the role of SP cells in normal breast development and in breast carcinogenesis remains to be elucidated.
