Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 106:9286-91. 2009..This study provides evidence that epithelial stem cells are dispensable for normal airway homeostasis. We also demonstrate that stem cell activation and robust clonal cellular expansion occur only during repair from severe lung injury...
- Epidermal stem cells are retained in vivo throughout skin agingAdam Giangreco

Aging Cell 7:250-9. 2008..These findings, coupled with observed dermal gene expression changes, suggest that epidermal stem cells themselves are intrinsically aging resistant and that local environmental or systemic factors modulate skin aging...
