Astrocytes represent the major glial cell population within the central nervous system. In order to elucidate the function of astrocytes under physiological conditions and during the course of neurological disease, astrocytic gene expression profiling is necessary. However, since astrocytes form an intimately connected network with neurons and other cell types in the brain, gene expression analysis of astrocytes with a sufficient degree of cellular specificity is difficult. Here we are… CONTINUE READING
