Microarray profiling to analyze the effect of Snai1 loss in mouse intestinal epithelium

Epithelial stem cells from a variety of tissues have been shown to express genes linked to mesenchymal cell states. The Snail family of transcriptional factors has long been regarded as a marker of mesenchymal cells, however recent studies have indicated an involvement in regulation of epithelial stem cell populations. Snai1 is expressed in the stem cell… CONTINUE READING
