There and back again: hair follicle stem cell dynamics

Cell Stem Cell. 2011 Jan 7;8(1):8-9. doi: 10.1016/j.stem.2010.12.018.


Recently in Cell, Hsu et al. (2011) defined the relationship between stem cells and differentiated progeny within a hair follicle lineage. Their work reveals that stem cell descendants that have migrated out of the bulge can return to this niche and actively contribute to its function.
