Study reveals dynamic changes in gene regulation in human stem cells

Last year, this team reported recurrent changes in the genomes of human as they are expanded in culture. The current report, which appears in the May 4, 2012 issue of the journal Cell Stem Cell, shows that these cells can also change their , the patterns of DNA modifications that regulate the activity of specific —sometimes radically. These changes may influence the cells’ abilities to serve as models of human disease and development.
