Lgr6 labels a rare population of mammary gland progenitor cells that are able to originate luminal mammary tumours : Nature Cell Biology : Nature Research
whew - very complicated - lgr6 seems to mark unipotent progenitors that can be either basal or luminal(!). However, it seem mainly to mark luminal tumors - is present in PyMT tumors but not some chemically induced basal tumors....Might be interesting to see if lgr6 expression is up or down in the areg KO tumors?

Wnt and Neuregulin1/ErbB signalling extends 3D culture of hormone responsive mammary organoids : Nature Communications
Looks like a significant step forward in understanding the interepithelial signaling - I don't think any stromal cell contributions are present here.
"Basal cells secrete Nrg1, resulting in Nrg1/ErbB signalling activation in luminal cells, promoting luminal progenitor cell expansion and differentiation. In contrast, progesterone-stimulated Wnt4 secretion by luminal ER+ cells, alongside R-spondin 1 produced by luminal ER− cells, activate Wnt signalling in the basal stem/progenitor cell population via the Wnt receptors Fz and Lrp5/6 and the R-spondin 1 receptor Lgr5. Wnt signalling activation in this compartment is likely to promote growth and differentiation of the basal cell layer. Fz, frizzled; Lgr5, leucine-rich repeat-containing G-protein-coupled receptor 5; Lrp5/6, low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 5/6."

Internal Mammary Nodes
In this small cohort, 1–3 presumed normal internal mammary lymph nodes measuring 2–9 mm (mean diameter 4.5 mm) were detected in about half of asymptomatic high-risk women presenting for screening MRI of the breasts.

Internal mammary lymph nodes were more frequently visualized on the left (p < 0.001), at the second and third intercostal spaces

>5mm max diameter susp. PET or US bx
