GFAP and Nestin are proteins that are co-expressed by certain key cells found in the human central nervous system.

The invention claimed by the patents resulted from research conducted at NsGene while in pursuit of cell-based treatments for Parkinson's disease. The terms of the patents extend into 2020 and 2021.
