In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Di Stefano et al. (2019) identify the RNA helicase DDX6 as a regulator of stem cell pluripotency and differentiation. DDX6 depletion leads to P-body disruption, which, in turn, inhibits or promotes stem and progenitor cell differentiation, depending on their cellular context.
