A metabolic checkpoint for embryonic stem cell differentiation

Upon exit from self-renewal, embryonic stem cells differentiate into different types of tissues – a process regulated by various complex mechanisms. Recent work published by the Betschinger group shows the importance of the lysosome – which is directly associated with cellular metabolism and nutrition – in developmental progression. The researchers could also link their findings to a human developmental disorder. Read more
