  1. 1. Simulations of Astrocyte Induction by Transient Overexpression

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Beräkningsbiologi och biologisk fysik; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för astronomi och teoretisk fysik

    Author : Jonas Petersson; [2019]
    Keywords : astrocyte; overexpression; sox9; nfia; nfib; n-cor; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Astrocytes are one of the most common types of cells found in the central nervous system, and they play an important supportive role for neurons and other brain cells. In order to obtain astrocytes for medical or experimental purposes, some protocols enable the production of astrocytes from stem cells, but it is of interest to be able to produce astrocytes from fibroblasts, a cell type found in the skin.
