This Week in Cell

With the help of single-cell transcriptome sequencing and other approaches, a team from the US and the UK takes a look at mesenchymal cell populations and heterogeneity in the adult mouse lung. The researchers characterized the adult mesenchymal cells using a combination of marker-based genetic lineage tracing, organoid cultures, and single-cell RNA sequencing. Their results suggest that the same markers found in epithelial stem cells — known as Lgr5 and Lgr6 — also appear in adult lung mesenchymal cells.
