TET Enzymes Play a Role in Stem Cell Lineage

The Rao lab, part of the Program in Cellular and Molecular Medicine at Children’s Hospital Boston and the Immune Disease Institute (PCMM/IDI), published a paper about embryonic stem cells in the February 2011 issue of Cell Stem Cell. Dr. George Daley, Director of the Stem Cell Transplantation Program at Children’s Hospital Boston, is one of the authors of the paper, which describes how the TET family of enzymes play a role in the lineage decisions of stem cells and might also play a role in the development of induced pluripotent stem cells.
