Schwann cell precursors: a hub of neural crest development


Stierli, Salome; Sommer, Lukas (2022). Schwann cell precursors: a hub of neural crest development. EMBO Journal Online, 41(17):e111955.

Abstract

Schwann cell precursors (SCPs) are transient glial progenitors that are important for the formation of late neural crest derivatives, yet their heterogeneity and developmental potential remain incompletely understood. In this issue, Kastriti, Faure, von Ahsen et al (2022) use comprehensive single-cell RNA sequencing analyses to identify a transient "hub" state common to SCPs and neural crest cells (NCCs), revealing a striking similarity of SCPs to late migrating NCCs. These results raise important questions about the potential role of such a state in adult tissue regeneration and tumourigenesis.
