  1. Limiting dilution analysis of the repopulating frequency of mammary stem cell (MaSC)-enriched cells from either wild-type or Csf1op/opglands transplanted into wild-type recipients. Cells were injected into the cleared mammary fat pads of three-week-old syngeneic recipients. Results are pooled from four independent experiments (P = 0.00065). *Shown as number of outgrowths per number of injected fat pads. Csf1 = colony stimulating factor 1.
