  • Study identifies signals that make early stem cells | Newswire
    are dependent on the niche for instructions on both how to become a stem cell and how to control stem cell population size says first author Tamara Ouspenskaia The question was does the niche appear first and call other cells over to become stem cells Or is it the other way around Stem cells could be appearing elsewhere first and then recruiting the niche Working in the mouse hair follicle a region that contains active stem cells Fuchs and colleagues investigated the cell divisions that occur as a hair follicle is first forming The hair follicle begins as a small bud called a placode and develops into a tissue of multiple layers comprised of different cell types By labeling cells within the placode and tracing their progeny the researchers determined that from each division one daughter cell stayed put while the other escaped to a different layer Further experiments revealed that this escapee becomes a stem cell This finding is significant as it s the earliest point in development that stem cells have been detected in this system and it indicates that stem cells may exist before the niche is formed Flying the nest to become a stem cell How cells become the cell type they re destined to be a liver cell or skin cell for example depends on a number of factors including molecular signals from other cells that help turn specific genes on or off Fuchs and colleagues observed that the signaling activity was different between the two daughter cells that ended up in different locations and aimed to characterize how signaling helped seal their ultimate cell fate They found that the environment to which the escapee cell daughter moved had low levels of WNT signaling known to play a role in embryonic development In contrast WNT
