Cell Transformation by the Mammary Tumor Virus in Vitro

One of the fundamental characteristics of the mammary cell is its changing physiology. A comprehensive study of virus-induced cell alterations must therefore take into account the intimate biological modifications which normally arise in the individual cell as well as in its immediate environment. The amount of information concerning the hormonal requirements for a normal development of mouse mammary glands is rather impressive but only a brief summary will be necessary to clarify the data presented in this report.
