Reconstruction of patterned piece of spinal cord in 3D culture

30 octubre 2014

The central nervous system in vertebrates develops from the neural tube, which is the basis for the differentiation in spinal cord and brain. Researchers have demonstrated for the first time the in vitro growth of a piece of spinal cord in three dimensions from mouse embryonic stem cells. Correct spatial organization of motor neurons, interneurons and dorsal interneurons along the dorsal/ventral axis was observed.
