CRIGEM™ iPSC-Derived Neural Stem Cells, MAPT P301L HOM
Please be aware that the correct volume of Neural Plating Medium (Cat. NCC-2101-ZP07) (not Xeno-Free) needed for your specific order volume of cells will be supplied FREE OF CHARGE.
The P301L mutation MAPT has been implicated in frontotemporal dementia and parkinsonism (Dumanchin et al., 1998). The mutation affects only the 4R isoforms of MAPT since the exon containing the mutation is spliced out of 3R isoforms (Hutton et al., 1998). Aggregated MAPT/tau protein in affected patients consisted mainly of the 4R isoform (Hutton et al., 1998). The P301L mutation promotes aggregation of MAPT/tau protein into ordered paired helical filaments and beta sheet formation in vitro (von Bergen et al., 2001).
Growing cells: Growing cell cultures should be checked on receipt using an inverted microscope. Immediately check the cell density upon arrival for any obvious defects. If the cell density is too high (more than 80% confluent) subculture the cells (harvest and reseed) immediately.
