Stem cells in the brain: Limited self-renewal

11 marzo 2015

Stem cells in the brain can produce neurons and are consequently seen as a hope for treatment. A team of researchers has now discovered that the self-renewal rate of the stem cells is however limited, explaining why their number drops over the course of a lifetime. This work now sets the basis for further investigation of the signalling pathways that maintain the stem cells.
