    Generation of human hepatic progenitor cells with regenerative and metabolic capacities from primary hepatocytes

    Takeshi Katsuda et al.
    Human chemically induced liver progenitors (hCLiPs), which are generated from primary human hepatocytes, exhibit the potential to repopulate injured livers of host mice with efficiency > 90%.

    Stochastic cell-cycle entry and cell-state-dependent fate outputs of injury-reactivated tectal radial glia in zebrafish

    Shuguang Yu, Jie He
    The analysis of injury-reactivated tectal radial glia in zebrafish reveals a stochastic cell-cycle entry and cell-state-dependent regulation of the balance between neurogenesis and gliogenesis.

    TERRA regulate the transcriptional landscape of pluripotent cells through TRF1-dependent recruitment of PRC2

    Rosa María Marión et al.
    Telomeric TRF1 controls the transcriptional programmes of pluripotent stem cells by recruiting PRC2 to pluripotency and differentiation genes by controlling the expression of those gene sites and the binding of TERRA RNAs to them.

    A requirement of Polo-like kinase 1 in murine embryonic myogenesis and adult muscle regeneration

    Zhihao Jia et al.
    Inhibition of Polo-like kinase that has been shown to exhibit antitumor effect unexpectedly disrupts muscle stem cell function, leading to developmental and regenerative failures.

    Skin vasculature and hair follicle cross-talking associated with stem cell activation and tissue homeostasis

    Kefei Nina Li et al.
    Hair follicle epithelium and skin vasculature remodeling are coordinated during quiescence, and their cross-talking is associated with the timing of stem cell activation.

    Stem cell-derived cranial and spinal motor neurons reveal proteostatic differences between ALS resistant and sensitive motor neurons

    Disi An et al.
    Stem cell-derived motor neurons with differential ALS vulnerability identified proteasome activity as a possible mechanism that explains their differential sensitivity.

    Epithelial geometry regulates spindle orientation and progenitor fate during formation of the mammalian epidermis

    Kimberly Box et al.
    Early in mammalian epidermal development, basal epidermal progenitor cells utilize packing and three-dimensional geometry, rather than cortical polarity cues, to inform division orientation and progenitor cell fate.
