Growth factor stimulation triggers apoptotic cell death in mature oligodendrocytes.

Abstract

Oligodendrocytes are responsible for myelination of axons within the central nervous system and are lost in the lesions of multiple sclerosis. The question of whether mature oligodendrocytes are capable of division, and hence of giving rise to new myelinating cells, remains controversial. We have studied the response in vitro of rat oligodendrocytes to… (More)
