Neural stem cells generate new neurons throughout life in the mammalian brain. Neural stem cells are self-renewing, multipotent cells that generate the main phenotype of the nervous system. Stem cells are characterized by their capability to differentiate into multiple cell types via exogenous stimuli from their environment. They undergo asymmetric cell division into two daughter cells, one non-specialized and one specialized. Neural stem cells primarily differentiate … Continue reading Researchers identify neuroprotective mechanism against stem cell aging.
