Cell Reports - NPTX1 Regulates Neural Lineage Specification from Human Pluripotent Stem Cells

Jacob Blumenthal's curator insight, February 15, 2014 4:07 PM

Researchers from the Neural Stem Cell Institute have discovered that the secreted protein  NPTX1 plays a key role in neural lineage specification. They found that NPTX1 is rapidly upregulated during neural induction from human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) and that by  contolling its expression levels it is possible to reduce or initiate neural lineage commitment.
