The subcommissural organ (SCO) is an ependymal brain gland that secretes into the cerebrospinal fluid glycoproteins that polymerize, forming Reissner's fiber (RF). The SCO-RF complex seems to be involved in vertebrate nervous system development, although its role in adults is unknown. Furthermore, its physiology is still greatly undetermined, and little is… CONTINUE READING
