A growing body of evidence suggests that only a small subpopulation of malignant glioma cells have true tumorigenic potential. A study by Peñuelas et al. in this issue of Cancer Cell demonstrates that TGF-beta can stimulate self-renewal and inhibit differentiation in a proportion of these glioma-initiating cells.
