Scientists have also discovered a new type of cell in the spinal cord that could lead to new treatments for T spinal cord injuries and disease. Researchers used the Allen Spinal Cord Atlas, a genome-wide map of gene expression throughout the mouse spinal cord.  They compared the genes expressed, or turned on, in adult spinal cord radial glia with those found in other neural stem cells, revealing a signature set of 122 genes that indicate the likeness of these cells to classic neural stem cells. The study, authored by scientists from the University of British Columbia, the Allen Institute for.....
