The mammary gland is a dynamic organ that continually changes its architecture and function. Reciprocal interactions between epithelium and adipocyte-containing stroma exert profound effects on all stages of its development, even though the details of these events are not fully understood. To address this issue, enormous potential exists in the utilization of synthetic adipose tissue model systems to uncover the properties and functions of adipocytes in the mammary gland. The first part of this review focuses on mammary adipose tissue (or adipocyte)-related model systems developed in recent years and their utility in investigating adipose-epithelial interactions, mammary gland morphogenesis, development and tumorigenesis. The second part shifts to the field of adipose-based breast tissue engineering, focusing on how these synthetic adipose tissue models are being constructed in vitro or in vivo for regeneration of the mammary gland, and their potentials in adipose tissue engineering also are discussed.
