Neural cell adhesion molecule stimulates survival of premyelinating oligodendrocytes via the fibroblast growth factor receptor.


Axonal signals are critical in promoting the survival and maturation of oligodendrocytes during myelination, with contact-dependent signals thought to play a key role. However, the exact nature of these signals remains unclear. Neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM) is expressed by both axons and oligodendrocytes and is ideally localized to transduce signals… (More)
