The researchers observed that many of the progenitor cells arising from the dividing Muller glia cells died within the first week after their production, but those that managed to turn into amacrine cells survived for at least 30 days.
Objective: What happens in the small brain blood vessels and surrounding neurons and glia cells (the neurovascular unit) after a stroke?
The human glia cells essentially took over to the point where virtually all of the glial progenitor cells and a large proportion of the astrocytes in the mice were of human origin, and essentially developed and behaved as they would have in a person's brain," said Goldman.
17 /PRNewswire/ -- Brain tumors called ependymomas that occur in different parts of the central nervous system appear to arise from different subpopulations of stem cells called radial glia cells (RGCs), according to investigators at St.
But Golderg's work suggests that while glia cells slow axon growth, they're not the only problem.
Among these mechanisms are increased oxidative stress, damage to the mitochondria, interference with the activity of growth factors, effects on glia cells, impaired development and function of chemical messenger systems involved in neuronal communication, changes in the transport and uptake of the sugar glucose, effects on cell adhesion, and changes in the regulation of gene activity dur ing development.
