Coordinating cell proliferation and differentiation

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

174 Scopus citations


Cell proliferation and differentiation are highly coordinated processes during development. Recent studies have revealed that this coordination may result from dual functions residing in the central regulators of proliferation, allowing them to also regulate differentiation. Studies have also shown that some terminally differentiated cells can be made to divide beyond their normal capacity.
