Post trauma proliferated GFAP-positive colloid cell can promote caryocinesia of colloid cell, causing the differentiation of primitive progenitor cell towards mature glia cell.
Second, for the production of glia cells and neurons in the postnatal brain, Lgl1 function is only required in the individual stem cell which is just in the process of generating a neuron or glia cell.
The researchers say that mammals have an even more limited Muller glia cell response to injury, compared to birds.
It attenuates activated glia cells, which play a major role in certain neurological conditions.
The transportation of sugar into the brain is regulated by so-called glia cells that react to hormones such as insulin or leptin; previously it was thought that this was only possible for neurons.
The morphology of both types of cells can be clearly observed in Figure 1, where neuronal cells can be easily differentiated from non-neuronal cells as neuronal cells have a cell body and neuritis, which are connected with other neuronal cells, while in the case of glia cells (non-neuronal cells), the cells having flattened shape with fibroblasts like morphology.
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?
Neuronal and glia cells showed the presence of DNA, which are the transmitters of genetic information.
