Adult stem cells are essential for tissue regeneration. However, the mechanisms underlying the activation of quiescent adult stem cells remain elusive. Recently, a team of HKUST scientists revealed that intron detention (IR) is a key to the mechanism; when stem cell enters quiescence exit, Dek releases conserved introns, which allow the cell to be activated.
