Protection of neurons against PBDE-induced cytotoxicity by the presence of astrocytes is thus the probable reason for differentiated hNPC insensitivity toward PBDE-dependent cell death, whereas proliferating precursors are known to possess better defense mechanisms than do postmitotic neural cells (Madhavan et al.
