Abstract

greater insight into mammary cell physiology without the need for invasive tissue biopsy. Optimisation of collection and storage of breastmilk enabled the investigation of changes in the apoptotic physiology of cells from the mammary gland. This was determined during milk removal by analysing mitochondrial depolarisation. Fore- and hind-milk demonstrated significantly more apoptotic cells than mid-milk (p
