Regeneration of adult tissues relies on a small population of adult stem cells located in a specialized microenvironment. The adult stem cells divide continuously to produce new stem cells, as well as differentiated daughter cells to replenish lost cells due to damage or aging. The molecular mechanisms controlling their ability to divide, self-renew and differentiate remain largely undiscovered. The Drosophila reproductive systems have proven to be excellent models to understand the basic… CONTINUE READING
