  1. Parsons M, Pisharath H, Yusuff S, Moore J, Siekmann A, Lawson N, et al. Notch-responsive cells initiate the secondary transition in larval zebrafish pancreas. Mech Dev. 2009;126:898-912 pubmed publisher
    ..We also show that Notch-responsive cells persist in the adult pancreas and possess the classical characteristics of centroacinar cells, a cell type believed to be a multipotent progenitor cell in adult mammalian pancreas. ..
  2. Delaspre F, Beer R, Rovira M, Huang W, Wang G, Gee S, et al. Centroacinar Cells Are Progenitors That Contribute to Endocrine Pancreas Regeneration. Diabetes. 2015;64:3499-509 pubmed publisher
    ..Furthermore, we show that in cftr loss-of-function mutants, there is a deficiency of larval CACs, providing a possible explanation for pancreatic complications associated with cystic fibrosis. ..
