    Vacuolar H+-ATPase determines daughter cell fates through asymmetric segregation of the nucleosome remodeling and deacetylase complex

    Zhongyun Xie, Yongping Chai ... Wei Li
    Asymmetric segregation of V-ATPase may cause distinct acidification levels in the two daughter cells, enabling asymmetric epigenetic inheritance that specifies their respective life-versus-death fates.

    Differential regulation by CD47 and thrombospondin-1 of extramedullary erythropoiesis in mouse spleen

    Rajdeep Banerjee, Thomas J Meyer ... David D Roberts
    Increased extramedullary erythropoiesis in spleen compensates for the elevated turnover of red blood cells in mice lacking CD47, but extramedullary erythropoiesis is suppressed in mice lacking the CD47 ligand thrombospondin-1.
