Abstract

Pancreatic endocrine progenitor cells proliferate and transiently express the bHLH transcription factor Ngn3. In recent issues of Developmental Cell, Azzarelli et al. (2017) and Krentz et al. (2017) demonstrate how CDK phosphorylation of Ngn3 governs the switch between their renewal and differentiation. Lengthening the cell cycle allows Ngn3 accumulation, outpacing phosphorylation-induced degradation.
