Abstract

The behavior of a cell is significantly influenced by its context. Epithelial cells derived from glandular organs such as the breast recreate their glandular organization when grown under 3D culture conditions. While traditional monolayer cultures are powerful tools to understand how cells proliferate, grow and respond to stress, they do not recreate the 3D property observed in vivo. Multiple studies demonstrate that 3D organization can reveal novel and unexpected insights into the mechanisms by which normal and tumor-derived epithelial cells function. In the present article we comment on a study that reports identification of a RasV12-induced IL-6 signaling network in mammary epithelial cells in 3D cultures.
