Neural stem cells in the subventricular zone are a source of astrocytes and oligodendrocytes, but not microglia.

Abstract

The developmental origin of microglia remains a controversial subject. While it is generally accepted that primitive fetal macrophages that migrate from the yolk sac to the brain become microglia, it also has been argued that there is a second source of microglia that are of neuroectodermal lineage. To determine whether progenitors in the dorsolateral… (More)
