Stem cells in the hair follicle bulge contribute to wound repair but not to homeostasis of the epidermis
The discovery of long-lived epithelial stem cells in the bulge region of the hair follicle led to the hypothesis that epidermal renewal and epidermal repair after wounding both depend on these cells.Expand
Wnt-dependent de novo hair follicle regeneration in adult mouse skin after wounding
The mammalian hair follicle is a complex ‘mini-organ’ thought to form only during development; loss of an adult follicle is considered permanent. However, the possibility that hair follicles developExpand
Wnt activation in nail epithelium couples nail growth to digit regeneration
The tips of mammalian digits can regenerate after amputation, like those of amphibians. It is unknown why this capacity is limited to the area associated with the nail. Here we show that nail stemExpand
Expansion of the Cell Plate in Plant Cytokinesis Requires a Kinesin-like Protein/MAPKKK Complex
The tobacco mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase NPK1 regulates lateral expansion of the cell plate at cytokinesis. Here, we show that the kinesin-like proteins NACK1 and NACK2 act asExpand
Coordinated Activation of Wnt in Epithelial and Melanocyte Stem Cells Initiates Pigmented Hair Regeneration
Melanocyte stem cells (McSCs) intimately interact with epithelial stem cells (EpSCs) in the hair follicle bulge and secondary hair germ (sHG). Together, they undergo activation and differentiation toExpand
Hair follicle stem cells in the lower bulge form the secondary germ, a biochemically distinct but functionally equivalent progenitor cell population, at the termination of catagen.
The lowermost portion of the resting (telogen) follicle consists of the bulge and secondary hair germ. We previously showed that the progeny of stem cells in the bulge form the lower follicle andExpand
Direct migration of follicular melanocyte stem cells to the epidermis after wounding or UVB irradiation is dependent on Mc1r signaling
During wound healing, stem cells provide functional mature cells to meet acute demands for tissue regeneration. Simultaneously, the tissue must maintain a pool of stem cells to sustain its futureExpand
Distinct functions for Wnt/β-catenin in hair follicle stem cell proliferation and survival and interfollicular epidermal homeostasis.
Wnt/β-catenin signaling is a central regulator of adult stem cells. Variable sensitivity of Wnt reporter transgenes, β-catenin's dual roles in adhesion and signaling, and hair follicle degradationExpand
Wound healing and skin regeneration.
The skin is a complex organ consisting of the epidermis, dermis, and skin appendages, including the hair follicle and sebaceous gland. Wound healing in adult mammals results in scar formation withoutExpand
Hair follicle aging is driven by transepidermal elimination of stem cells via COL17A1 proteolysis
Quiescent and aging hair follicle stem cells Stem cells enable normal cell homeostasis, but they also exist in a quiescent state, ready to proliferate and differentiate after tissue damage. Now, twoExpand
