Genetic factors control regenerative properties of blood-forming stem cells

Two studies define how key genetic factors affect blood-forming stem cells by either accelerating or hindering the cells’ regenerative properties. The findings could one day lead to improved treatments for people undergoing common therapies for cancer such as chemotherapy and radiation, say researchers….
