Tumor development requires facilitative alterations in the stroma. In this issue of Cancer Cell, Nguyen et al. provide evidence that irradiation of mammary stroma drives accelerated development of mammary tumors that are more likely to be estrogen receptor-negative and implicate stromal production of transforming growth factor-β in this process.
