Stage-Specific and Cell Fate Markers

  • Ichiro Nakano
  • Harley I. Kornblum


A great deal of progress has been made in the identification and use of markers in the study of neural progenitor and stem cells. The use of individual proteins or genes as highly specific markers, however, must always be made with a great deal of caution-no one antigen or gene is always likely to be only expressed by one specific cell type. Additionally, recent studies depicting the complexity and heterogeneity of neural stem cells will call for newer and better markers as well as new ways of thinking about cell identity.
