Doublecortin (DCX) is a microtubule-associated protein essential for the migration of immature neurons in the developing and adult vertebrate brain. Herein, the distribution of DCX-immunoreactive (DCX-ir) cells in the prosencephalon of the adult pigeon (Columba livia) is described, in order to collect the evidence of their immature neural phenotype and to investigate their putative place of origin. Bipolar and multipolar DCX-ir cells were observed to be widespread throughout the parenchyma of… 
Telencephalic distributions of doublecortin and glial fibrillary acidic protein suggest novel migratory pathways in adult lizards
TLDR
In addition to two previously known migratory streams, this study provides anatomical evidence in support for two novel migratory routes in amniotes.

TLDR
The distribution of putative proliferating cells and immature neurons in the brain of the common ostrich and the emu is widespread, far more so than in mammals, and compares with the neognathous birds, and suggests that brain plasticity and neuronal turnover is an important aspect of cognitive brain functions in these birds.
Changes in neurogenesis with post‑hatching age in the male Japanese quail (Cortunix japonica) brain.
TLDR
Assessing changes in neurogenesis associated with post‑hatching age in the Japanese quail brain using proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) and doublecortin (DCX) immunohistochemistry found cell proliferation appears to be restricted to the ventricular zones whereas neuronal recruitment is more widespread in the olfactory bulb, telencephalon and cerebellum.
The distribution of calbindinD‐28k and parvalbumin immunoreactive neurons in the somatosensory area of the pigeon pallium
TLDR
PV immunoreactive neurons in the somatosensory area of the pigeon pallium were significantly abundant compared with CB immunore active neurons, and the mean proportion of PV immunore Active neurons to total neurons was higher than that in the CB immunoresistance neurons in all the subdivisions.
Putative adult neurogenesis in two domestic pigeon breeds (Columba livia domestica): racing homer versus utility carneau pigeons
TLDR
The similarity in the distribution of proliferating cells and new neurons in the telencephalon of the two breeds of pigeons may suggest that adult neurogenesis is a conserved trait as an ecological adaptation irrespective of body size.
Endogenous versus exogenous markers of adult neurogenesis in canaries and other birds: Advantages and disadvantages
TLDR
These endogenous markers and DCX staining in particular clearly represent a useful approach to the detailed study of neurogenesis especially when combined with other techniques such as BrdU.
Putative Adult Neurogenesis in Old World Parrots: The Congo African Grey Parrot (Psittacus erithacus) and Timneh Grey Parrot (Psittacus timneh)
TLDR
The widespread distribution of PCNA and DCX in the brains of both parrot species suggest the importance of adult neurogenesis and neuronal plasticity during learning and adaptation to external environmental variations.
Anatomically discrete sex differences and enhancement by testosterone of cell proliferation in the telencephalic ventricle zone of the adult canary brain
TLDR
It is demonstrated here that there is both an effect of testosterone and possibly a more subtle effect of sex on cellular proliferation in the adult songbird brain, and that these effects are specific to different levels of the brain.
Defensive behaviors and prosencephalic neurogenesis in pigeons (Columba livia) are affected by environmental enrichment in adulthood
TLDR
Enriched environment data suggest that enrichment favored behavioral inhibition and neurogenesis in the adult pigeons through different, parallel mechanisms.
The hippocampus of birds in a view of evolutionary connectomics
TLDR
3D polarized light imaging is shown with 3D-PLI that the HF of pigeons like the mammalian HF shows regional specializations along the anterior-posterior axis in connectivity, and provides new aspects for the ongoing discussion on hippocampal evolution and mind.

Distribution of doublecortin expressing cells near the lateral ventricles in the adult mouse brain
TLDR
The results suggest that the distribution of cells comprising the walls of the lateral ventricle are more heterogeneous than was thought previously, that SVZ cells may migrate dorsally and ventrally away from the SVZ, and that some emigrated cells express a neuronal phenotype.
The Doublecortin-Expressing Population in the Developing and Adult Brain Contains Multipotential Precursors in Addition to Neuronal-Lineage Cells
TLDR
Results indicate that DCXhigh cells, regardless of location, are restricted to the neuronal lineage or are bone fide neurons, whereas some DCXlow cells retain their multipotentiality.
The microtubule-associated protein doublecortin is broadly expressed in the telencephalon of adult canaries
TLDR
The broad expression of DCX specifically in adult brain structures that exhibit the characteristic of active incorporation of new neurons suggests that DCX plays a key role in the migration ofnew neurons in the brain of adult songbirds as it presumably does during ontogeny.
Expression of doublecortin (DCX) and doublecortin‐like kinase (DCLK) within the developing chick brain
TLDR
The cloning of the chick ortholog of doublecortin‐like kinase (DCLK), a member of this family, is described and the expression of DCX and DCLK in the layered regions of the developing chick brain is assessed, suggesting that the chick cerebellum will be an intriguing system to explore the effects of DCx and D CLK on postmigratory neuronal function.
Doublecortin expression in the adult rat telencephalon
TLDR
It is hypothesized that DCX expression in differentiated neurons could be related to its capacity for microtubule reorganization and that this fact could be linked to axonal outgrowth or synaptogenesis.
The distribution of expression of doublecortin (DCX) mRNA and protein in the zebra finch brain
TLDR
The intensity of expression in the adult was significantly lower than that at P9, which suggests a particular role for DCX in early song bird brain development, and the present results offer no evidence for a sex difference in neuronal migration.
Doublecortin-expressing cells are present in layer II across the adult guinea pig cerebral cortex: Partial colocalization with mature interneuron markers
TLDR
The data indicate that DCX+ cells exist widely in the adult guinea pig cerebral cortex, with a predominant localization in upper layer II, and that this population of cells might be involved in interneuron plasticity in theAdult mammalian cerebral cortex.
DCX and PSA-NCAM expression identifies a population of neurons preferentially distributed in associative areas of different pallial derivatives and vertebrate species.
TLDR
Data support the fact that coexpression of DCX+/PSA-NCAM+/Tbr-1+ in the adult brain identifies evolutionary conserved cell populations shared by different pallial derivatives including the mammalian NC.
Postnatal changes in the distribution and density of neuronal nuclei and doublecortin antigens in domestic chicks (Gallus domesticus)
TLDR
The authors' data indicate that a significant number of new neurons is still formed in the telencephalon of posthatch domestic chicks, whereas subtelencephalic areas (except for the cerebellum) finish their neuronal expansion before hatching.
Transient expression of doublecortin during adult neurogenesis
TLDR
The transient expression pattern of DCX in neuronal committed progenitor cells/neuroblasts indicates that DCX could be developed into a suitable marker for adult neurogenesis and may provide an alternative to BrdU labeling.
