Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Stem cell therapy for Parkinson's disease requires effective production of dopaminergic neurons. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Sacchetti et al. (2009) report an unexpected role of liver X receptors and their ligand, oxysterols, in regulating dopaminergic neurogenesis.
