- Radial glial cells as neuronal precursors: a new perspective on the correlation of morphology and lineage restriction in the developing cerebral cortex of miceMagdalena Gotz
Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology, Martinsried Munich, Germany
Brain Res Bull 57:777-88. 2002..These new data are then related to radial glial cells in other non-mammalian vertebrates persisting into adulthood and suggest that radial glia are not only neurogenic during development, but also in adulthood...
- Glial cells generate neurons--master control within CNS regions: developmental perspectives on neural stem cellsMagdalena Gotz
Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology, Planegg Martinsried Munich, Germany
Neuroscientist 9:379-97. 2003..These new insights into the cellular and molecular mechanisms of neurogenesis help to design novel approaches for reconstitutive therapy of neurodegenerative diseases...
- Neuronal or glial progeny: regional differences in radial glia fatePaolo Malatesta
Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology, Am Klopferspitz 18a, D 82152 Planegg Martinsried, Germany
Neuron 37:751-64. 2003..This shows that the progeny of radial glia not only differs profoundly between brain regions but also includes the majority of neurons in some parts of the CNS...
- Reelin signaling directly affects radial glia morphology and biochemical maturationEva Hartfuss
Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology, Neuronal Specification, Am Klopferspitz 18a, D 82152 Martinsried, Germany
Development 130:4597-609. 2003..Taken together, these results unravel a novel role of reelin signaling to radial glial cells that is crucial for the regulation of their Blbp content and characteristic morphology in a region-specific manner...
- Glial cells generate neurons: the role of the transcription factor Pax6Nico Heins
Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology, Am Klopferspitz 18a, 82152, Planegg Martinsreid, Munich, Germany
Nat Neurosci 5:308-15. 2002..These results demonstrated an important role of Pax6 as intrinsic fate determinant of the neurogenic potential of glial cells...
