Subject collection: Stem Cells & Regeneration Review articles
- Dental mesenchymal stem cells
Summary: This Review summarises the different mesenchymal stem cell populations present in the mammalian tooth and supporting tissues, and discusses their potential application for dental therapies.
- Cell fate control by pioneer transcription factors
Summary: This Development at a Glance article provides an overview of pioneer transcription factors including their role in lineage specification in vivo, and how they can be used to manipulate cell fate in vitro.
- Plant regeneration: cellular origins and molecular mechanisms
Summary: This Review article summarises how plants control various types of regeneration and discusses how developmental and environmental constraints influence these regulatory mechanisms.
- Developmental origin and lineage plasticity of endogenous cardiac stem cells
Summary: This Review summarises the different stem cell populations that have been described in the adult mammalian heart, as well their developmental origin and lineage potential both in vivo and in vitro.
- Lineage-specific stem cells, signals and asymmetries during stomatal development
Summary: This Review summarises the transcription factor and epigenetic control of stomatal development and patterning, highlighting similarities between plant and animal developmental mechanisms.
- Stars from the darkest night: unlocking the neurogenic potential of astrocytes in different brain regions
Summary: This Review discusses the extent to which astrocytes in different brain regions can behave as neural stem cells, and the molecular and environmental factors that either promote or repress such activity.
- The ciliary marginal zone of the zebrafish retina: clonal and time-lapse analysis of a continuously growing tissue
Summary: A quantitative study of cell proliferation and fate choice in the zebrafish retina - a continuously growing neural tissue - reveals key features of late retinal neurogenesis.
- Closing the circle: from organoids back to development
Summary: This Editorial looks at the emerging field of in vitro organogenesis and discusses how organoid technology can be applied to better understand developmental processes.
- An interview with Melissa Little
Summary: Melissa Little chats about her research and career, the potential of the organoid and stem cell fields, and what she hopes to achieve during her guest editorship with Development.
- A comparative view of regenerative neurogenesis in vertebrates
Summary: This Review article provides a comparative view of neuronal repair across vertebrate species, with a particular focus on the molecular pathways that enable repair in some, but not all animals.
