The scientists made their discovery as part of research in which they identified genes that are activated to make specific proteins in crucial stem cells in the brain known as radial glial cells.
They found that after deletion of miR-34/449 genes, mice developed smaller brains and these contained a larger proportion of stem cells called radial glial cells.
Using a technique called single-cell RNA-seq to determine which types of cells in the developing nervous system express the AXL gene, they found that radial glial cells, neural stem cells that are crucial to normal brain development, were programmed to make AXL receptors.
