The existing view is that cortical oligodendrocytes (OLs) in rodents are born from the cortical subventricular zone (SVZ) after birth, but recent data suggest that many forebrain oligodendrocyte progenitor cells (OPCs) are specified much earlier (between E9.5 and E13.5 in the mouse) in the ventricular zone of the ventral forebrain under the control of sonic hedgehog (Shh) and migrate into the cortex afterward. We examined expression of specific early OL markers (PDGFRalpha, PLP/DM20, Olig2, and… CONTINUE READING
