Olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs), the principal glial cells of the peripheral olfactory system, have many phenotypic similarities with Schwann cells of the peripheral nervous system. This makes reliably distinguishing these two cells types difficult, especially following transplantation into areas of injury in the central nervous system. In an attempt to identify markers by which these two cells types can be distinguished, a recent proteomic analysis of fetal OECs and adult Schwann cells… CONTINUE READING
