The researchers say that mammals have an even more limited Muller glia cell response to injury, compared to birds.
The study suggests that normal molecular function of the tumor suppressor gene Lkb1 is essential to an important metabolic transition in cells as peripheral nerves (called axons) are coated with the protective myelin sheath by Schwann glia cells.
These Muller glia cells - a type of adult stem cell - is capable of transforming into the specialised cells in the back of the eye and could be useful for treating a wide range of sight disorders.

The team used a piezoelectric inkjet printer head, which expelled so-called glia cells and retinal ganglion cells from adult lab rats through a single nozzle less than one millimetre (0.
Antigen labeling was detected in neurons in the cerebral hemispheres and brain stem and in glia cells throughout the brain (Figure, panel B).
Objective: What happens in the small brain blood vessels and surrounding neurons and glia cells (the neurovascular unit) after a stroke?
In recent years scientists have begun to understand and appreciate the role that glia cells -- and more specifically astrocytes -- play in brain function.
Two "short communications" are also offered on enteric glia cells and laparoscopic-assisted ileocecal resections.
Specifically, the partners have succeeded in inducing most of neural cell species including neurons and glia cells from mouse embryonic stem cells.
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.
Mainly glia cells secrete apoE in the central nervous system (14-16).
