Scientists Identify Path to Stem Cell Activation

Scientists identified a stem cell progney, called Transit-Amplifying Cells or TACs, play a key role in telling hair follicle stem cells when to become active. NYSCF – Druckenmiller Fellow Dr. Ya-Chieh Hsu of The Rockefeller University was first author on the paper, published in Cell.

While the specific signals may differ, TACs are found in many different adult tissues, making this research important for understanding stem cell function in the intestines and blood, among other tissues.
