Identifying the steps involved in striatal development is important both for understanding the striatum in health and disease, and for generating protocols to differentiate striatal neurons for regenerative medicine. The most prominent neuronal subtype in the adult striatum is the medium spiny projection neuron (MSN), which constitutes more than 85% of all(More)
Expression of the Schwann cell phenotype is regulated by signals from the adjoining axon. After axotomy, the Schwann cell ceases the production and maintenance of the myelin sheath and assumes phagocytic properties necessary to digest its own myelin. The molecular mechanisms responsible for this behavior remain unclear. A monoclonal antibody termed BIKS was(More)
