  • Relative expression of neuronal and glial markers by transplanted adult spinal cord progenitor cells in the spinal cord and hippocampal formation at 6 weeks after transplantation. Sections were triple-labeled with BrdU, neuronal markers [calbindin (Calb) and NeuN], a glial progenitor marker (NG2), an astrocytic maker (GFAP), and an oligodendrocytic marker (Rip) and analyzed by confocal microscopy. MCL, Molecular cell layer; ND, not determined.
