Objective: to assess the expression of doublecortin (DCx), a protein necessary for neuronal migration in normal, transformed and neoplastic glial cell lines and possible presence of a specific subpopulation of DCx-positive cells in highly motile human glial tumors. Methods: Fetal human astrocytes[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
