Kuo decided to study these cells because the lateral ventricles in the brain, where adult neural stem cells reside, are also the last area of a developing brain that grows ependymal cells.
Later it was found that not only embryonic CNS but also adult CNS possess the ability to generate neurospheres forming cells in vitro, including neural epithelial progenitor (NEP) cells, radial glial cells, SVZ cells, and ependymal cells, that clonigenically generate neurons, astrocytes and oligodendrocytes in vivo (16).
These tumors arise from the ependymal cells of the central canal; hence, they are located centrally, as opposed to the eccentric location of astrocytomas (Table 2).
