Human pancreatic section showing the epithelium of a large pancreatic duct harboring progenitor-like cells. These cells are characterized by expression of PDX1 (blue) and the BMP-7 receptor ALK3 (red), but not the ductal marker carbonic anhydrase II (CAII, green). When sorted and cultured in defined conditions, these cells are BMP-7 expandable and exhibit multipotent differentiation potential. Image credit: Diabetes Research Institute
