SWItching on epidermal cell fate

Cell Stem Cell. 2013 Feb 7;12(2):141-2. doi: 10.1016/j.stem.2013.01.011.


Chromatin regulatory complexes are well known regulators of stem cell fate; however, the mechanisms regulating their activity are not well understood. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Bao et al. (2013) show that ACTL6a inhibits targeting of the SWI/SNF complex to differentiation genes, thereby preserving the epidermal progenitor state.
