A new role for an old friend: NFAT and stem cell quiescence CELL STEM CELL Oro, A. E. 2008; 2 (2): 104-106


NFAT proteins are calcium-regulated transcription factors that play a critical role during the timing and activation of many vertebrate tissues. A recent paper in Cell (Horsley et al., 2008) demonstrates a role of the calcineurin-NFAT-CDK4 pathway in maintaining hair follicle stem cell quiescence.
