Many congratulations to Tohru that his study of the role of the Rb1 gene in muscle stem cells has been accepted for publication in The Journal of Biological Chemistry. This particular study was a lot of work, and it is the third paper by Tohru from his postdoctoral fellowship in our laboratory (the other in press & recent in print studies were on the muscle cancer rhabdomyosarcoma and a strangely muscle-like ontogeny of pituitary progenitor cells). Tohru is truly a scientist for all seasons.
Co-authors of the JBC study include current KellerLab member, Guangheng Li, as well as KellerLab alumnists Suresh Prajapati and Koichi Nishijo.
