During the development of the mouse telencephalon, multipotent neural precursor cells (NPCs) generate oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPCs), progenitors restricted to the oligodendrocyte lineage, at various sites in a developmental stage-dependent manner. Although substantial progress has been made in identifying the transcription factors that control the(More)
Extracellular stimuli regulate neuronal differentiation and subtype specification during brain development, although the intracellular signaling pathways that mediate these processes remain largely unclear. We now show that the PDK1-Akt pathway regulates differentiation of telencephalic neural precursor cells (NPCs). Active Akt promotes differentiation of(More)
