Adenosine kinase regulates neural stem cell proliferation after traumatic brain injury

Takeaway

  • The long isoform of adenosine kinase (ADK-L) regulates of neural stem cell proliferation and cellular plasticity following traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Why this matters

    Studies in mice suggest that ADK-L is involved in regulating cell proliferation and plasticity during brain development. These findings indicate that inhibiting ADK may be a viable strategy for modulating neural stem cell proliferation after TBI.
