Explant Methodology for Analyzing Neuroblast Migration
Authors:  Kirsty J. Dixon, Alisa Turbic, Ann M. Turnley and Daniel J. Liebl, date: 05/05/2017, view: 1222, Q&A: 0
The subventricular zone (SVZ) in the mammalian forebrain contains stem/progenitor cells that migrate through the rostral migratory stream (RMS) to the olfactory bulb throughout adulthood. SVZ-derived explant cultures provide a convenient method to ...
