Cells from the olfactory epithelium of adult human cadavers have been propagated in primary culture and subsequently cloned. These cells exhibit neuronal properties including: neuron-specific enolase, olfactory marker protein, neurofilaments, and growth-associated protein 43. Simultaneously, the cells exhibit nonneuronal properties such as glial fibrillary acidic protein and keratin, the latter suggesting properties of neuroblasts or stem cells. These clonal cultures contain 5–10% of cells… CONTINUE READING
