Reversing the fate of differentiated stem cells can prevent hair loss. Because hair follicle stem cells are metabolically flexible, they can cope with low oxygen conditions and sustain their long-lived ways. The stem cells’ differentiated counterparts, however, rely on glutamine metabolism. Metabolic switching, from glutamine to glycolysis, depends on mTOR signal transduction.
