Denise Montell's Group Identifies Protein Used to Maintain Adult Stem Cells in Fruit Flies

Apr 22, 2013

Understanding exactly how stem cells form into specific organs and tissues is the holy grail of regenerative medicine. Now, MCDB faculty member Denise Montell and colleagues have added to that body of knowledge by determining how stem cells produce different types of "daughter" cells in Drosophila (fruit flies). The findings appear today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.
