The neocortex of the adult brain consists of neurons and glia that are generated by precursor cells of the embryonic ventricular zone. In general, glia are generated after neurons during development, but radial glia are an exception to this rule. Radial glia are generated before neurogenesis and guide neuronal migration. Radial glia are mitotically active throughout neurogenesis, and disappear or become astrocytes when neuronal migration is complete. Although the lineage relationships of… Expand
Radial glia give rise to adult neural stem cells in the subventricular zone.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that radial glia cells not only serve as progenitors for many neurons and glial cells soon after birth but also give rise to adult SVZ stem cells that continue to produce neurons throughout adult life. Expand
Radial glia-like cells persist in the adult rat brain
TLDR
It is suggested that the embryonic radial glia cells located around the LV walls do not complete their transformation into astrocytes, but rather persist in adulthood, which is similar to the situation in the embryonic brain. Expand
Radial glial origin of the adult neural stem cells in the subventricular zone
TLDR
The modified radial glia appear to be neural progenitor cells belonging to the astroglial lineage (type B cells) assuring both stem cell self-renewal and production of a differentiated progeny in the adult subventricular zone, and also playing regulatory roles in stem cell niche maintenance. Expand
Neurogenic radial glia in the outer subventricular zone of human neocortex
TLDR
This work finds that OSVZ radial glia-like cells have a long basal process but, surprisingly, are non-epithelial as they lack contact with the ventricular surface, and demonstrates that these cells can undergo proliferative divisions and self-renewing asymmetric divisions to generate neuronal progenitor cells that can proliferate further. Expand
Radial glia and neural stem cells
TLDR
Embryonic pluripotent radial glia and adult neural stem cells may be clonally linked, thus representing a lineage displaying stem cell features in both the developing and mature central nervous system. Expand
Role of radial glia in cytogenesis, patterning and boundary formation in the developing spinal cord
TLDR
Radial glial fibres provide a transient scaffold and impose constraints in the developing central nervous system that facilitate cell migration and axon growth and regulate the axon out‐growth and pathfinding processes that occur during white matter patterning of the developing spinal cord. Expand
Investigating radial glia in vitro
TLDR
Those studies in which radial glia have been investigated in vitro following isolation from foetal tissues or differentiation of embryonic stem (ES) cells are reviewed to discuss how these approaches, together with an ability to expand radialglia-like neural stem (NS) cell lines, may offer unique opportunities in basic and applied neurobiology. Expand
Differentiation of radial glia‐like cells from embryonic stem cells
TLDR
It is demonstrated that radial glia‐like cells can be generated from ES/EC cell lines, and it is suggested that the differentiation of radial glial cells may be a common pathway during in vitro neural differentiation of ES cells. Expand
Neurogenic radial glial cells in reptile, rodent and human: from mitosis to migration.
TLDR
It is demonstrated here that most dividing progenitor cells in the embryonic human VZ express radial glial proteins and that radial glia-like cells maintain a vimentin-positive radial fiber throughout each stage of cell division. Expand
Radial glia is a progenitor of neocortical neurons in the developing cerebral cortex
TLDR
It is proposed that the radial glia is a progenitor of neocortical neurons, and that a significant number of radially migrating neurons is guided by their own radial processes connected to the pia mater. Expand

Lineage of radial glia in the chicken optic tectum.
TLDR
To reconcile the observations that many radialglia are present early, that radial glia are among the last offspring of a multipotential stem cell, and that most clones contain only a single radial glial cell, it is suggested that the stem cell is, or becomes, a radial glio cell. Expand
Radial glia phenotype: Origin, regulation, and transdifferentiation
TLDR
The perception of radial glia may have to change from that of path‐defining cells to that of specialized precursor cells transiently fulfilling a guidance role during brain histogenesis, which probably constitutes one of the most common transdifferentiation events in mammalian development. Expand
Neurons, astrocytes, and oligodendrocytes of the rat cerebral cortex originate from separate progenitor cells: an ultrastructural analysis of clonally related cells
TLDR
The striking phenotypic homogeneity in the clones arising from individual progenitor cells suggests that by the onset of cortical neurogenesis, at least some lineage restrictions have already occurred among the precursor cell population. Expand
Isolation of radial glial cells by fluorescent-activated cell sorting reveals a neuronal lineage.
TLDR
Using fluorescence-activated cell sorting, it is shown that radial glial cells also are neuronal precursors and only later, after neurogenesis, do they shift towards an exclusive generation of astrocytes. Expand
Cell lineage in the cerebral cortex of the mouse studied in vivo and in vitro with a Recombinant Retrovirus
TLDR
To analyze cell lineage in the murine cerebral cortex, progenitor cells were infected with a recombinant retrovirus, then the retroviral gene product was used to identify the descendants of infected cells, and neuronal and glial lineages appear to diverge early in cortical development. Expand
Radial Glial Identity Is Promoted by Notch1 Signaling in the Murine Forebrain
TLDR
It is suggested that Notch1 promotes radial glial identity during embryogenesis, and that radial glia may be lineally related to stem cells in the adult nervous system. Expand

TLDR
There are two distinct types of progenitor cells in the developing cortex, which generates only grey matter astrocytes and gives rise to neurones - both pyramidal and nonpyramidal - and to another class of cells that is tentatively identified as glial cells of the white matter. Expand
Specification of cerebral cortical areas.
TLDR
The radial unit model provides a framework for understanding cerebral evolution, epigenetic regulation of the parcellation of cytoarchitectonic areas, and insight into the pathogenesis of certain cortical disorders in humans. Expand
Cell Coupling and Uncoupling in the Ventricular Zone of Developing Neocortex
TLDR
It is demonstrated that cell clustering in the VZ is restricted to neural precursors and radial glia, is dynamic through the cell cycle, and may play a role in regulating neurogenesis. Expand

TLDR
To investigate cellular interactions during early neocortical development, whole-cell patch clamp recordings were made from neuroblasts in the ventricular zone of fetal rats to allow direct cell to cell interaction at the earliest stages of corticogenesis. Expand
