p53 regulates the self-renewal and differentiation of neural precursors.

During embryo neurogenesis, neurons that originate from stem cells located in the forebrain subventricular zone (SVZ) continuously migrate to the olfactory bulb (OB). However, other authors describe the occurrence of resident stem cells in the OB. In the present work we report that the absence of tumor suppressor protein p53 increases the number of… CONTINUE READING
