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.
Puerarin has been shown to effectively inhibit proinflammatory cytokine production and/or glia cell activation in a variety of diseases [8-10].
Glia cell: A type of cell in the central nervous system that serves diverse support functions for the development and function of the nerve cells.
As a special nerve cell in human brain, glia cell can transmit signals to neurons and other glia cells.
The researchers say that mammals have an even more limited Muller glia cell response to injury, compared to birds.
It is made up of glia cells with multiple long protrusions, which collectively make up a mesh-like organ within the skin.

While glial cells help develop and protect neuron function, too many glia cells disturb connectivity between neurons.
Neural progenitor cells: Cells that can be differentiated into neurons or glia cells (astrocytes, oligodendrocytes).
The team did so by changing Muller glia cells in the retina into rod photoreceptors.
The zebrafish has the advantage here because the Mller glia cells in its eyes that normally don't respond to light can actually transform into photoreceptors when they are needed.
