Cell reproduction dogma challenged

Meiosis is essential to sexual reproduction. For almost 15 years, it has been commonly held that retinoic acid, a molecule derived from vitamin A, triggers meiosis in mammalian germ cells.

These findings set the stage for new research in the field of reproductive biology.
