Transformation of neuroblasts into oligodendrocytes

Neuroblasts can generate myelinating oligodendrocytes in pathological states.
Date de publication

In this article, the Durbec team showed that neuroblasts, which give rise to neurons in physiological conditions, generate myelinating oligodendrocytes in pathological states. This fate change occurs directly by forming a transient cell state co-expressing neuronal and oligodendrocyte identity markers. This conversion involves fine-tuning of transcriptional and translational mechanisms and regulation of cell metabolism and migratory behaviour.
