Takeda K, Okumura T, Taniguchi K, Adachi Yamada T. Adult Intestine Aging Model. Adv Exp Med Biol. 2018;1076:11-23 pubmed publisher
..The molecular mechanism for senescence of the Drosophila adult midgut and its relation with the corresponding mechanism in mammals are overviewed. In addition, a basic method for observing aged phenotypes of the midgut is described. ..

..Since recent reports showed that mammalian GATA-6 regulates normal and cancer stem cells in the adult intestinal tract, our data also provide information on the evolutionally conserved roles of GATA factors in stem-cell regulation. ..
