NSC morphology, growth behavior when grown in supportive conditions
HNSC plays an important role in development, learning, and hippocampal plasticity. They are also used to study age-related decline in proliferation, as well as neurological diseases such as stroke, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease. These cells respond to damage and can differentiate to replace lost or injured neurons. They migrate to brain tumors in a targeted manner and help replace dying neurons in injured adult brain tissue.
Creative Biolabs HNSC is a primary cell derived from the human cortex (a single donor). They were kept frozen in the first generation. After culturing in human neural differentiation medium for 10 days, our HNSC stain is positive for β-tubulin III, GFAP, and the oligodendrocyte marker O4. Each batch was tested for its ability to form neurospheres in the growth medium of human neural stem cells.
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.
