Pyramidal neurons of upper cortical layers generated by NEX-positive progenitor cells in the subventricular zone.
TLDR
The data suggest that NEX-positive progenitors within the SVZ are committed to a glutamatergic neuronal fate and have evolved to expand the number of cortical output neurons that is characteristic for the mammalian forebrain.
Human Cortical Neurons Originate from Radial Glia and Neuron-Restricted Progenitors
TLDR
The in vitro study suggests that diverse populations of cortical progenitor cells, including multipotent RGs and neuron-restricted progenitors, contribute differentially to cortical neurogenesis at the second trimester of gestation in human cerebral cortex.
Dividing Precursor Cells of the Embryonic Cortical Ventricular Zone Have Morphological and Molecular Characteristics of Radial Glia
The embryonic ventricular zone (VZ) of the cerebral cortex contains migrating neurons, radial glial cells, and a large population of cycling progenitor cells that generate newborn neurons. The latter
Radial glial origin of the adult neural stem cells in the subventricular zone
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.
Tangential migration and proliferation of intermediate progenitors of GABAergic neurons in the mouse telencephalon
TLDR
Cell-lineage analysis by simple-retrovirus transduction revealed that the neocortical IPGNs self-renew and give rise to a small number of neocorticals GABAergic neurons and to a large number of granule and periglomerular cells in the olfactory bulb.
Cell types, lineage, and architecture of the germinal zone in the adult dentate gyrus
TLDR
A model of how the germinal zone of the adult hippocampus is organized is provided and a sequence of cellular stages in the generation of new granule neurons is suggested.
CHARACTERIZATION OF SUBTYPES OF PRECURSOR CELLS IN THE DEVELOPING CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM
TLDR
Signals are presented showing that radial glial cells divide without retracting their processes during M-phase, suggesting that radialglial cells can proliferate and guide migrating neurons at a time.
Coincident Generation of Pyramidal Neurons and Protoplasmic Astrocytes in Neocortical Columns
TLDR
C cortical development in a transgenic mouse is examined to demonstrate that neural progenitors in neocortex generate discrete columnar structures that contain both projection neurons and protoplasmic astrocytes, and that these two cell types are generated in a spatially restricted manner during cortical development.
MAPPING ASTROCYTE DEVELOPMENT IN THE DORSAL CORTEX OF THE MOUSE BRAIN
TLDR
A subset of primitive neuroepithelial-like cells in the human central nervous system (CNS) express the beta-IV isoform of tubulin (BT4) and the development of these cells is followed, both in vivo and in vitro, by crossing BT4-Cre transgenic mice with Cre-dependent ROSA reporter mouse lines.

Neurons derived from radial glial cells establish radial units in neocortex
TLDR
The results support the concept that a lineage relationship between neurons and proliferative radial glia may underlie the radial organization of neocortex.
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.
Disruption of neuronal migration and radial glia in the developing cerebral cortex following ablation of Cajal-Retzius cells.
TLDR
It is shown that ablation of Cajal-Retzius cells in layer I by local application of domoic acid in newborn mice arrests migration of the late-generated neurons, destined to cortical layers II-III, that have been labeled by 5-bromodeoxyuridine injections administered at E16.
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.
Characterization of CNS precursor subtypes and radial glia.
TLDR
It is found that almost all radial glial cells proliferate throughout neurogenesis and three distinct subsets identified by immunostaining for the antigens RC2, the astrocyte-specific glutamate transporter (GLAST), and the brain-lipid-binding protein (BLBP) are identified.
Visualization of mitotic radial glial lineage cells in the developing rat brain by Cdc2 kinase‐phosphorylated vimentin
TLDR
The monoclonal antibody 4A4 provides an useful tool to label mitotic glia in the developing brain and revealed different patterns of gliogenesis in the neocortex and cerebellum.
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.
