The structure of the perineuronal sheath of satellite glial cells
(SGCs) in sensory ganglia.
Control inflammation that can harm glial cells
by treating infections such as gum disease promptly.
Dose--response analysis of individual chemicals in the reconstituted glial cell
It's clear that glial cells
complement neurons: They are the neurons' partners, not caretakers, as we used to think.
In order to test the ability of these stem cell-derived glial cells
to make myelin in a damaged nervous system, the investigators implanted these cells into the spinal cords of a specific strain of rat--one that does not make normal myelin due to a genetic mutation.
We now report that the cell membrane permeable fluorogenic substrate calcein acetoxymethyl (AM) ester, which is converted to an impermeable and fluorescent derivative by esterases, differentially labels the adaxonal glial cells
and other structures in the glial sheath surrounding the squid giant axon (GA) and the crayfish medial giant axon (MGA).
Brain cell roll call: three types of glial cells
and a neuron
The discovery stems from a collaboration between the laboratories of radial glial cell
scientist Arnold Kriegstein director of the Broad Center of Regeneration Medicine and Stem Cell Research, and Michael Oldham of UCSF.
The protein, known as glial cell
line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF), is injected once a month through a port just behind the ear and pushed through the tubes and catheters by an external pump.
prenatally in the rat), whereas gliogenesis and glial cell
differentiation continue well into postnatal development (Aschner et al.
