definition
  • An emulsion of fat globules within a fluid that is secreted by the mammary gland during lactation.
editor note
  • to axiomatize the different forms of mammary gland secretion an ontology of the phases of pregnancy/lactation is required. Using the existing GO def of lactation is circular.
external ontology notes
  • ncit:Milk refers specifically to cow milk
has exact synonym
  • mammary gland milk
homology notes
  • The detailed similarities of mammary glands in living monotremes, marsupials, and eutherians argue for a monophyletic origin of these glands, perhaps by the combination of parts of preexisting sebaceous and sweat glands.[well established][VHOG]
