      DescriptionAdult Rat Hippocampal Neural Stem Cells
      OverviewAdult Rat Hippocampal Neural Stem Cells


      Neural stem cells (NSC) are self-renewing cells with the capacity to differentiate into neurons, astrocytes and oligodendrocytes. Adult NSC are extremely rare and are believed to reside only in discrete regions of the hippocampus and the subventricular zone. Due to their therapeutic promise, considerable attention has been focused on identifying the sources of stem cells, the signals that regulate their proliferation and the specification of neural stem cells towards more differentiated cell lineages (Gage, 2000).

      Presently, neural stem cells are often identified based upon the presence of molecular markers that are correlated with the stem and/or progenitor state along with the absence of differentiated phenotypes as assessed through marker analysis. To aid researchers in the accurate identification and characterization of neural stem cells, Millipore presents cryopreserved Adult Rat Hippocampal Neural Stem Cells (Catalog No. SCR022).

      Millipore's Cryopreserved Adult Rat Hippocampal Neural Stem Cells provides ready-to use primary neural stem cells isolated from the hippocampus of adult Fisher 344 rats. These primary cells may be used for a variety of research applications including drug development, for studies of neurotoxicity, neurogenesis, electrophysiology, neurotransmitter and receptor functions and CNS diseases and disorders.

      We recommend that Millipore's Cryopreserved Adult Rat Hippocampal Neural Stem Cells (Catalog No. SCR022) be used in conjunction with the Neural Stem Cell Marker Characterization Kit (Catalog No. SCR019) and differentiation assays that demonstrate multipotentiality of the starting cell population. Please look for these differentiation assays from CHEMICON® in the near future.
