A guide to choosing markers for immature neurons and intermediate progenitors
Radial glia divide asymmetrically to produce one radial glia cell and one intermediate progenitor cell (IPC). IPCs differentiate into post-mitotic immature neurons, which migrate to their final destination in the nervous system and integrate into the neuronal network.
A transcription factor whose expression marks the transition from radial glia to intermediate progenitors.
