The bad seed: PDGF receptors link adult neural progenitors to glioma stem cells.

Author information

In this issue of Neuron, Jackson et al. show that adult neural stem cells (B cells) express PDGF receptors. Functional analysis of PDGF signaling in these neural progenitors resonates in provocative ways with an older body of literature on PDGF autocrine loops in malignant glioma and with more recent observations on the bHLH transcription factor Olig2.
