Stem cells: A tale of two kingdoms

Curr Biol. 1999 Mar 11;9(5):R171-2. doi: 10.1016/s0960-9822(99)80105-5.

Abstract

Homologous genes have recently been shown to regulate stem cell maintenance in animals and plants. This discovery should facilitate elucidation of the poorly understood factors that control stem cell maintenance and differentiation.
