Neural Stem Cells

Neural Stem Cells (NSCs) are the most primordial and uncommitted cells of the nervous system, and are believed to give rise to the vast array of more specialized cells of the CNS and peripheral nervous system (PNS). To be considered a "neural stem cell," in contrast to a "progenitor" cell (i.e., cells that have already become lineage committed to give rise to only one category of neural component, e.g., glial cells versus neurons), that cell must be capable of (1) generating all neural lineages (neurons, astrocytes, and oligodendrocytes) throughout the nervous system, (2) having some capacity for self-renewal, and (3) being able to give rise to cell types in addition to themselves through asymmetric cell division
