Neural precursor cells are protected from apoptosis induced by trophic factor withdrawal or genotoxic stress by inhibitors of glycogen synthase kinase 3.


Mechanisms controlling the survival of neural precursor cells (NPCs) are critical during brain development, in adults for neuron replenishment, and after transplantation for neuron replacement. This investigation found that glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK3) promotes apoptotic signaling in cultured NPCs derived from embryonic mouse brain subjected to two… (More)
