Special Issue: Inflammatory Bowel Diseases and Intestinal Epithelial Stem Cells

Abstract

Adult stem cells have the capacity to self-renew and to regenerate tissues long-term, in both homeostasis and wound repair. Genetic lineage tracing studies have identified two principal stem cell populations in the intestine. One population consists of actively cycling Lgr5+ cells residing at the crypt base. The other population consists of quiescent Bmi1… (More)
