New Insights and Tools in Pancreatic Cell
[or: How we learned to stop worrying and ♥ the data.]
Analysis of the remarkable redirection of cell fates that we have found to occur either in normal tissue reacting to injury (acinar cells becoming duct and endocrine cells), or after deleting/over-expressing specific transcription factors (endocrine cells exchange between hormone types), will increase our understanding of the mechanisms driving organogenesis, and adult cell predispositions related to injury and cancer. Defining forward differentiation and reprogramming pathways should aid in optimizing differentiation protocols in vitro, or could produce new avenues for cell restoration/regeneration therapies in vivo.
