How do cells know their future and forget their past

Posted by on November 7th, 2019

All cells in the body contain the same genetic material. The difference between cells therefore depends solely on which genes are expressed or ‘turned on’. Now, researchers from the University of Copenhagen have gained new insights into how genes are turned on and off and how the cells “forget their past” while developing into a[…]

Secret talk between epithelium and endothelium determines hair follicle stem cell fate

Posted by on November 6th, 2019

By Kefei Nina Li and Prachi Jain   Stem cells are typically defined by their ability to self-renew and differentiate. These activities are tightly controlled by both intrinsic cues and extrinsic cues from the microenvironment, known as the SC niche. This niche consists of multiple components, among which blood vessels (BVs) are critical as they[…]

A gnawing question: which cells are responsible for tooth renewal and regeneration?

Posted by on October 23rd, 2019

By Amnon Sharir (UCSF), Allon M Klein (HMS), Ophir D Klein (UCSF) As most mouse geneticists know, treating a rodent with malocclusion of its front teeth can be a Sisyphean task: as much as one trims the tooth, it grows right back within a few days (Figure 1). The basis of this often-frustrating situation is that[…]
