Pericyte-derived leading structures during human cerebral cortex vascularization. a, b Forebrain PCs, revealed by colocalization of NG2 and CD146, form the leading tip of cerebral cortex growing microvessels and give rise to TNT-like (a) and MT-like (b) structures. c, d CD146 staining unveils the filopodial processes of NG2+/CD146+ sprouting PCs (arrow).
