The phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) signaling pathway is frequently deregulated in human cancer. PIK3CA, the gene encoding the catalytic subunit p110α of PI3K, is mutated in ~30% of breast cancers. Here, we describe current mouse models harboring the hotspot mutation PIK3CA H1047R in the mammary gland and discuss differences in tumor latency and pathogenesis.
