Neural Stem Cells

It deals with the cells which are capable to self-renewing and to proliferate without any limit, to produce progeny cells which terminally differentiate into neurons, astrocytes and oligodendrocytes. Stem cells are characterized by their capacity to differentiate into multiple cell types. They undergo symmetric or asymmetric cell division into two daughter cells. In symmetric cell division, both daughter cells are also stem cells. In asymmetric division, stem cell produces one stem cell and one specialized cell. The non-stem cell progeny of NSCs are referred to as neural progenitor cells. Some neural stem cells persist in the adult vertebrate brain and continue to produce neurons throughout life. NSCs primarily differentiate into neurons, astrocytes, and oligodendrocytes. Neural stem cell, largely undifferentiated cell originating in the central nervous system. Neural stem cells (NSCs) have the potential to give rise to offspring cells that grow and differentiate into neurons and glial cells (non-neuronal cells that insulate neurons and enhance the speed at which neurons send signals).
