Mechanisms regulating adult neural stem cells of mammalian CNS



Neural stem cells are present in the adult central nervous systems of all mammals, including humans. In the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus these adult neural progenitor cells proliferate and give rise to functionally integrated granule neurons throughout life. Our laboratory is working on the biology of adult neural stem cells and we are interested in the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating self-renewal and fate specification of adult neural stem cells, and nerve guidance and synaptic integration of their neuronal progeny of adult neural stem cells in the mature CNS environment. Our laboratory is using an integrated approach to investigate rodent and human neural stem cells both in vitro and in animal models utilizing technologies in molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, virology, multiphoton confocal imaging and electrophysiology.

Self-renewal of adult neural stem cells: FGF-2 signaling plays essential roles in the maintenance of the proliferation and multi-potency of adult neural stem cells. Using stem cells derived from adult rodent hippocampus and human surgical tissues, we are investigating underlying signal transduction mechanisms.

Neuronal fate specification and neuronal subtype differentiation: Using an in vitro co-culture assay, we previously demonstrated thahttp://neuroscience.jhu.edu/editprofile.aspt astrocytes derived from adult hippocampus, but not those from adult spinal cord, instruct FGF-2-dependent adult neural stem cells to adapt a neuronal fate. We are currently examining the underlying molecular mechanisms using both molecular and genomic approaches. We are also very interested in mechanisms that control the neuronal subtype differentiation of adult neural stem cells from both rodents and humans and are currently exploring the possibilities to use these cells for degenerative neurological diseases, such as Parkinson's Disease and ALS.

Axon and dendrite guidance of newborn neurons from adult neural stem cells: In collaboration with Dr. Guo-li Ming’s laboratory, we have developed in vitro and in vivo model systems to examine the guidance behaviors of newborn neurons from adult neural stem cells. We are using growth cone turning assay to examine growth cone response of neuronal progeny of adult stem cells to a defined diffusible gradient of guidance cues. In parallel, we are examine the axonal/dendritic guidance of newborn neurons in the adult CNS by manipulation of endogenous neural progenitors with engineered retrovirus in normal and genetically modified mice .

Synaptic integration and plasticity by neuronal progeny of adult neural stem cells: We previously established an in vitro co-culture system where neurons derived from adult neural stem cells can functionally integrated into existing neuronal circuits. Recently we have been able to follow the development of retroviral labeled newborn neurons in vivo. We are currently examining the cellular and molecular mechanisms that regulate the functional integration and plasticity of newborn neurons using electrophysiology and multiphoton confocal imaging approaches.
