Juliane C. Kellner, Pierre A. Coulombe

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Biernaskie et al. (2009) demonstrate that a specific subpopulation of dermal papilla fibroblasts, marked by Sox2 expression, displays properties of adult stem cells, including serial hair follicle initiation, dermal cell differentiation, and skin-derived precursor production.
