During vertebrate development many types of precursor cells divide a limited number of times before they stop dividing and terminally differentiate. It is unclear what causes the cells to stop dividing when they do. We have been studying this problem in the oligodendrocyte cell lineage, which is responsible for myelination in the vertebrate central nervous(More)
During animal development many cells permanently stop dividing and terminally differentiate. For the most part, the mechanisms that control when the cells exit the cell cycle and differentiate are not known. We have been studying the mechanisms in the oligodendrocyte cell lineage. Studies of oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPCs) in culture suggest that(More)
