Neurogenic Radial Glia-like Cells in Meninges Migrate and Differentiate into Functionally Integrated Neurons in the Neonatal Cortex

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Carmeliet and colleagues have identified a population of radial glia-like neural progenitor cells located in the meninges of postnatal mice. After birth, these cells migrate through the caudal ventricular zone and then differentiate into functional and integrated neurons of the posterior cortex. 12 more words

The p53 Family Coordinates Wnt and Nodal Inputs in Mesendodermal Differentiation of Embryonic Stem Cells

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Massagué and colleagues show that the p53/63/73 family is essential for mesendoderm specification in embryonic stem cells. The p53 family transcriptionally activates the Wnt pathway in human and mouse ESCs to coordinate Wnt-Tcf and nodal-Smad inputs for mesendodermal differentiation of ESCs in vitro and in the embryo. 12 more words
