NG2/AN2+ glia has been identified as a fourth major glial cell type in the mammalian CNS that is distinct from other cell types. NG2/AN2+ cells are precursors of oligodendrocytes and some protoplasmic astrocytes in the gray matter. NG2/AN2 expression is down-regulated before the cells undergo terminal differentiation. However, a population of NG2/AN2+ cells remains in the white and gray matter after oligodendrocytes are generated. NG2/AN2+ glial cells participate in neuron-glial circuits by receiving presynaptic input from neurons and responding to neurotransmitters released by synapses. Many highly migratory neural tumors including melanomas express NG2/AN2.
