Ependymal cells, astrocytes, oligodendrocyte precursors and neural progenitor cells can form neurospheres like aggregates that can be passeged for a limited time period.
For the first time, investigators have identified a way to detect neural progenitor cells (NPCs), which can develop into neurons and other nervous system cells, in the living human brain using a type of imaging called magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS).
Now Stuart Lipton and his colleagues at the Burn-ham Institute for Medical Research in San Diego, California, have found that gp120 also slows down the division of adult stem cells called neural progenitor cells (aNPCs), thought to be important for memory and learning.
The researchers first cultured pluripotent monkey stem cells for a week to develop into multi-potent neural progenitor cells.
Developing effective treatments for Parkinson's and other nervous system disorders depends on scientists identifying a source of neural progenitor cells that can be transplanted without complications.
