The transcription factor GATA-3 is necessary for the formation of a mammary gland and the maintenance of mammary-cell differentiation. The loss of GATA-3 function in a fully formed mammary gland generates oestrogen receptor-negative, proliferating cells that lack expression of myoepithelial markers. Cells with similar characteristics in breast cancer are associated with poor prognosis.
