Key Protein Identified for Brain Stem Cell Longevity – Neuroscience News

Summary: INSR, a protein essential for insulin activity, plays a critical role in stem cell longevity. Additionally, inactivating INSR in glioblastoma brain cancer stem cells inhibits the growth of primitive tumor-forming cells. Source: Rutgers A receptor that was first identified as necessary for insulin action, that also is located on the neural stem cells found …
