The development of astrocytes in the rodent cerebrum has been considered to occur mainly in the perinatal stage after the end of neurogenesis, and the mode of generation and migration of the astroglial precursors in the embryonic cerebrum remains poorly understood. Tenascin-C (TN-C) is an astroglia-derived extracellular matrix molecule, and its expression can be traced to the ventricular germinative zone of the embryonic cerebrum. TN-C expression may therefore be used as a marker of astroglial… CONTINUE READING
