How does regulation of nuclear importation affect stem cell maintenance

Project Details

We have identified a nuclear importation factor that is required for maintenance of the germline stem cell population. We will use immonostaining and confocal microscopy to determine the effects of mutations of this factor on stem cell maintenance and conduct genetic interactions to identify proteins that are imported by this factor into the stem cell nucleus.
