We recently differentiated adult rat and human bone marrow stromal cells (MSCs) into presumptive neurons in cell culture. To determine whether the MSCs assume neuronal functions in vivo, we now characterize for the first time engraftment, migration, phenotypic expression, and long-term survival after infusion into embryonic day 15.5 (E15.5) rat ventricles(More)
To define relationships among marrow stromal cells (MSCs), multipotential progenitors, committed precursors, and derived neurons, we examined differentiation, mitosis, and apoptosis in vitro. Neural induction medium morphologically converted over 70% of MSCs to typical neurons, which expressed tau, neuronal nuclear antigen, neuron-specific enolase, and(More)
