Deciphering cell fate: Identification of the crucial stem cell switch mechanism
Differentiating stem cells can replace damaged and dying cells. However, how can stem cells choose which kind of cell to form in a particular circumstance? The team of Bon-Kyoung Koo at IMBA and the Institute for Basic Science discovered a new gene, Daam1, using intestinal organoids. Daam1 is crucial because it turns on the formation of secretory cells in the intestine. This discovery, which was published in Science Advances on November 24, offers fresh insights into the study of cancer.
A recent study has shown how important microglia are to the development of the human brain.
