Although sometimes considered a house-keeping function, multiple aspects of protein synthesis are regulated differently among somatic cells, including stem cells, and can be modulated in a cell-type-specific manner. These differences are required to establish and maintain differences in cell identity, cell function, tissue homeostasis, and tumor suppression.
