Subventricular zone (SVZ) cells emigrate toward brain injury but relatively few survive. Thus, if they are to be used for repair, ex vivo expansion and autologous transplantation of SVZ cells may be necessary. Since it is unclear how brain injury alters SVZ cell culture, we studied neurosphere formation, differentiation, and migration, after cortical lesions. The number of neurosphere forming cells from lesioned mice was comparable to controls. Also, the proportion of astrocytes and neurons g...Expand abstract
