Optimal proliferation of scarcily available neural stem and progenitor cells; proliferated cells retain their progenitor status and the potential to diferentiate into neurons and glias. Optimized and ready-to-use system removes the needs for media screening through “trial and error."
Due to their scarce availability, the in vitro expansion of human neural stem cells (NSC) and glial progenitor cells (GPC) has been a challenge to academic and clinical researchers. To address this challenge, we developed StemPro® Neural Supplement - an optimal, convenient, and cost-effective serum-free medium supplement for the proliferation of mammalian neural stem and progenitor cells cells, such as human and rat NSCs and GPCs. It can also be used, in combination with appropriate basal medium and growth factors, for the expansion of some neuronal progenitor cells. More importantly, proliferated cells retain their progenitor status and the potential to differentiate into neurons and glial cells.
In recent years, there has been an increased scientific interest in studying Neural Stem⁄Progenitor Cells due to their important roles in neurogenesis. Recent advances have also pointed to the potential use of Neural Stem⁄Progenitor Cells as effective therapies for neurodegenerative diseases, such as dopaminergic neural progenitor cells for Parkinson’s Disease, oligoprogenitor cells for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and multiple sclerosis (MS).
