The development of the adult intestinal stem cells: Insights from studies on thyroid hormone-dependent amphibian metamorphosis

Abstract

Adult organ-specific stem cells are essential for organ homeostasis and repair in adult vertebrates. The intestine is one of the best-studied organs in this regard. The intestinal epithelium undergoes constant self-renewal throughout adult life across vertebrates through the proliferation and subsequent differentiation of the adult stem cells. This self… (More)
