Novel Extracellular Matrix Structures in the Neural Stem Cell Niche Capture the Neurogenic Factor Fibroblast Growth Factor 2 from the Extracellular Milieu
The novel extracellular matrix structures called fractones are found in the lateral ventricle walls, the principal adult brain stem cell niche. By electron microscopy, fractones were shown to contactExpand

Fractones: Home and Conductors of the Neural Stem Cell Niche
Throughout life, neural stem cells proliferate and differentiate in restricted zones of the brain, termed niches, to produce new neurons and glial cells. In these niches, growth factors andExpand
