A whiter shade of gray: HIF and coordination of angiogenesis with postnatal myelination.

Abstract

Oligodendrocyte precursor cells are the primary source of myelinating oligodendrocytes in the neonatal CNS. In a recent issue of Cell, Yuen and coworkers (2014) show that hypoxia-inducible factors and Wnt7a/7b act in developing white matter, promoting angiogenesis in anticipation of the metabolic demands of oligogenesis, before finally allowing precursor… (More)
