Uncomplicated differentiation of stem cells into bipolar neurons and myelinating glia.

Epidermal neural crest stem cells (EPI-NCSCs), derived from the bulge of hair follicles, appear to be promising donor stem cell candidates. In the current work, EPI-NCSCs were harvested from rodents and humans. Isolation procedures revealed high levels of nestin-positive neural stem cells and the percentage of human neural stem cells (95+/-0.6%) is even… CONTINUE READING
