Asymmetric Notch Amplification to Secure Stem Cell Identity

Anthony M. Rossi, Claude Desplan

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


Stem cells self-renew and produce progenitors with limited proliferative potential. Reporting in Developmental Cell, Liu et al. (2017) demonstrate that in some neural stem cells, Notch activity is asymmetrically amplified by a positive feedback loop with the super elongation complex (SEC) to quickly differentiate between stem cells and progenitors.
