    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.
