Specification and differentiation of neural precursors into dopaminergic neurons within the ventral mesencephalon has been subject to much attention due to the implication of dopaminergic neurons in Parkinson's disease and the perspective of generating sources of therapeutically active cells to be used for cell replacement therapy for the disease. However, despite intensive research efforts, little is known about the characteristics of the dopamine neuron progenitors in human. We show that the… CONTINUE READING
