The Drosophila female germline stem cell lineage acts to spatially restrict DPP function within the niche.
Sci Signal. 2010; 3(132):ra57
This paper presents an interesting solution to the question of how self-renewal signals are confined within the boundaries of the niche so that only the stem cells, and not the nearby non-stem cell daughters, retain the stem cell fate.
In the Drosophila ovary, the germline stem cell (GSC) fate is maintained by the bone morphogenetic...
