Musashi1 is a highly conserved protein found in neural progenitor cells. We examined the expression dynamics of Musashi1 in conjunction with other representative neural progenitor antigenic determinants (Ki-67 and nestin) during 8 different stages of the developing human fetal germinal matrix. Our results indicate that Musashi1 is a useful marker for immature cells in periventricular areas inhabited by stem cells, progenitor cells, and differentiating cells.
