After sciatic nerve damage, local Schwann cells can shed off the myelin sheaths and transform to a neuroblast
status, where their proliferation and migration capacities can help to sweep away myelin remnants and generate a conduit for the axonal pathfinding, and consequently form the beneficial conditions for neurite outgrowth (1-3).
When including JAK/STAT signaling, they found that spontaneous, noise-induced neuroblast
differentiation is cancelled.
Effects of curcumin (Curcuma longa) on learning and spatial memory as well as cell proliferation and neuroblast
differentiation in adult and aged mice by upregulating brain-derived neurotrophic factor and CREB signaling.
littoralis extract on cell proliferation, neuroblast
differentiation, and the maturation of newborn neurons in the hippocampus of adult mice.
Neurogenesis was evaluated in the whole section by assessing neuroblast
density after DCX immunolabeling.
Interestingly, previous studies demonstrated that miR-183 and miR-200 gene families regulate cell proliferation in human glioblastoma cells [70, 71] and are involved in the equipoise between neuroepithelial proliferation and neuroblast
emergence in the optic lobe of flies .
 described a neuroblast
cell line overexpressing the ventricular zone gene-1 receptor (Vgz-1), to which LPA binds specifically to induce cell rounding and activation of G[[alpha].sub.i].
