- Drosophila Sulf1 is required for the termination of intestinal stem cell division during regeneration
Highlighted Article: The heparan sulfate 6-O endosulfatase Sulf1 is required for proper inactivation of Drosophila intestinal stem cell division during regeneration by modulating mitogenic signaling pathways.
- Decoding the stem cell quiescence cycle – lessons from yeast for regenerative biology
Summary: This Opinion article examines key concepts underlying our understanding of stem cell quiescence that can be attributed to studies in yeast.
- NRIP is newly identified as a Z-disc protein, activating calmodulin signaling for skeletal muscle contraction and regeneration
Summary: The interaction of NRIP with CaM results in the induction of slow myosin gene expression and mitochondrial activity, as well as the balancing of Ca2+ homeostasis; thus, loss of NRIP leads to muscle dystrophy.
