Stem cell and lineage determining factors in mammary gland

Laboratory Location: Cambridge Cancer Centre 

Departmental Affiliation: Department of Pathology



We are interested in identifying transcriptional regulators that control lineage commitment of mammary stem cells. We have identified a novel gene, Zfp157, that is a master regulator of the alveolar lineage. Further work is focussed on lineage tracing  using fluorescent fusion proteins and H2B-GFP to isolate and characterise long label-retaining cells.
