Abstract / Description of output

Cell-cell interactions, a key feature of the stem cell niche, regulate many aspects of stem cell behaviour. N-cadherin-mediated anchorage of neural stem cells within the adult neural niche maintains stem cell quiescence, and its release by the metalloproteinase MT5-MMP promotes neural stem cell activation.
