Astrocytes can gain neural stem cell properties after brain injury

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Blog

New research shows that specific types of brain cells become active after brain injuries and exhibit properties similar to those of neural stem cells. Astrocyte plasticity might correlate with the upregulation of the Galectin 3 protein, which may significantly contribute to discovery of additional biomarkers. The study discovered that a specific protein regulates these cells and could be a target …

Neural stem cells have the capability to transform into glial cells or neurons. Oligodendrocytes used in treatment of TM and astrocytes are examples of glial cells. What are Neural Cells and Why are they Important? Different areas of the human body, spinal cord and brain house different types of specialized stem cells.  In haematology for example, cord blood derived stem …
