Epithelial amphiregulin and stromal HER-1/2 heterodimers play signiﬁcant roles in ductal extension and maintain the survival of periductal stromal cells. During pregnancy, HER-1 TGF-a heterodimers affect side branching and alveologenesis. The naturally occurring HER-1 hypomorph, waved-2 mouse, shows impaired lactation. 55 Deregulated expression of HER-1 and HER-2 occurs frequently in breast cancer and may provide routes to estrogen-independent growth. 58 HER-2 is the preferred dimerization partner for other family members and is required for activating downstream signaling of the kinase-dead HER-3 receptor.
