How is the stem cell state programmed? A new study in Qi-Long Ying’s group at the Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC highlights the role of Gbx2, a DNA-binding regulatory factor, in switching fibroblasts to induced pluripotent stem cells.

The study is published online in Journal of Cell Science.
