Although this is a sensitive test system, yet, expression of GR in the cells and use of MMTV HRE makes the assay less specific.
The aim of the present study was to elucidate the mechanism by which hyperthermia applied through a hot-water bag induces subcellular destructive changes including MMTV in the spontaneous mammary tumors in the Strong A inbred strain of mice.
Another well-known family of genes that influence remarkably the organogenesis of the Mullerian reproductive tract is Wnt (wingless-type MMTV integration site family).
Some of the most intriguing hints of an infectious cause in humans come from how the basic geography of the disease syncs with prevalence of MMTV. A woman's odds of getting breast cancer greatly depend on where she lives.
Similarly mouse mammary tumour virus (MMTV) has been found to cause breast cancer in mice, and it has been shown that the virus could infect breast cells in humans (Retrovirology, DOI:10.1186/1742-4690, vol.4,p 73).

Holland and his colleagues named human mammary tumor virus (HMTV) several years ago has been shown to be 95% genetically identical to the mouse mammary tumor virus (MMTV), which is highly prevalent in Mas domesticus, the common house mouse that has lived closely with humans since the dawn of agriculture.
The team said previous studies identified MMTV as inducing breast cancer in mice - but with similar properties to human breast cancer.
The MMTV Live stage will feature an energetic romp through medieval life in the style of a Saturday morning kids' show.
MMTV chief Mike Mansfield, who signed the worldwide rights contract, said: "Lord Archer will earn a slice of the phone calls or internet charge every time someone votes.
