Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review

6 Scopus citations


Gut cells are exposed to diverse insults that necessitate their replacement from a stem cell pool balancing differentiation and proliferation. In this issue of Developmental Cell, Zhang and colleagues (2019) show autophagy-mediated regulation of EGFR signaling cell autonomously controls intestinal stem cell proliferation, with implications for human colorectal cancer development.
