Stem cells on alert: Priming quiescent stem cells after remote injury

Zeenat Malam, Ronald D. Cohn

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey


A recent paper published by Rodgers et al. describes a novel phase of stem cell quiescence, termed GAlert, that serves to prime cells in response to injury-induced signals. These stem cells are located distal to the site of injury and require mTORC1 activity to elicit the alert response.
