New mechanisms of stem cell regulation

IMBA-Scientists have identified the protein Mei-P26 as a regulator for micro RNAs and cell growth in the Drosophila ovarian stem cell lineage. This indicates that there mght be a new family of micro RNA regulators that act specifically in stem cell lineages.

Wissenschaftler am IMBA fanden bei Fliegen Gene, deren Fehlen normale Stammzellen zu Tumorstammzellen macht. Ähnliche Gene existieren auch beim Menschen. Im Wissenschaftsmagazin Nature berichten die Forscher über ihre Entdeckung.
