Term Information [More information on mammary gland development]

Accession
GO:0030879
Name
mammary gland development
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
mammogenesis
Definition
The process whose specific outcome is the progression of the mammary gland over time, from its formation to the mature structure. The mammary gland is a large compound sebaceous gland that in female mammals is modified to secrete milk. Its development starts with the formation of the mammary line and ends as the mature gland cycles between nursing and weaning stages. Source: PMID:9576833
