Reprogramming Study Reveals Single Transcription Factor Ascl1 Converts Astrocytes into Neurons in the Intact Brain
A recent study, published in the June 24th issue of the Journal of Neuroscience, demonstrated that expression of a single transcription factor efficiently induced astrocyte-to-neurons conversion in the intact brain. This work provides a novel approach to obtain functional neurons in the intact brain and a potential therapeutic solution for neural regeneration. ....
Traction Force Microscopy Revealed Dynamics of Contraction Force Generation in Migrating Neurons
A recent study published on the Journal of Cell Biology demonstrated that the neuron migration is controlled by three highly dynamic contraction centers (CCs) which are regulated by guidance cues. This work was performed mainly by graduate student JIANG Jian in the laboratory of POO Mu-ming.....
