Comparison of neuron-like cells derived from bone marrow stem cells to those differentiated from adult brain neural stem cells.

Bone marrow-derived stem/progenitor cells have been shown by independent investigators to give rise to neural-like cells (neurons and glia) both in vitro and in vivo. The objective of the present study was to determine whether nestin-enriched cells derived from bone marrow can differentiate into cells with the same morphological and functional… (More)
