First Ever Video of T Cell "Safety Training"

For the first time ever, UT Austin researchers captured the process in which developing killer T-cells (purple and white) are tested by dendritic cells (yellow), and others, to see if they react to normal proteins from the body. This safety check insures that the T-cells don’t harm normal cells in the body and cause autoimmune disorders. Credit: University of Texas at Austin.

On the Origin of Astrocytes

News

During fetal brain development, both neurons and astrocytes are generated from neural stem cells. One of the characteristics of this developmental process is that neural stem cells first generate neurons and, after that, start generating astrocytes. The "switch" to change the fate of neural stem cells from neurons to astrocytes has remained largely unidentified. Until now.
