Caloric intake influences metabolic homeostasis, somatic maintenance, tissue regeneration, and longevity in metazoans. Recent studies indicate that nutrient-dependent changes in stem cell populations play an important role in these effects. Here, we review the emerging picture of how nutrient-sensing pathways affect stem cell behavior, providing a mechanism… CONTINUE READING
