Estrogen and growth hormone (GH) promote ductal extension by stimulating estrogen receptor (ER)- and growth hormone receptor (GHR)-positive stromal cells surrounding the terminal end bud to produce insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF1). IGF induces the proliferation of the cap cells, which differentiate and move to the more proximal part of the duct to become myoepithelial cells. The body cells divide and differentiate into luminal cells. Macrophages stimulated by colony-stimulating factor-1 (CSF1) are required for ductal elongation.
