Differentiating Into The Stars

Cultured human neural progenitor cells differentiate into astrocytes. Neural progenitor cells generated from a human fetal brain were cultured and stained with antibodies against human nestin (green); a progenitor cell marker, and GFAP (orange); an astrocyte marker. The majority of the cells express GFAP suggesting they are differentiating into astrocytes.
