|Item||Mouse/Rat Neural Stem Cell Functional Identification Kit|
|Description|| Stem cells are functionally defined by their capacity to self renew and their ability to differentiate into multiple specialized progenitor cells, which can commit to further maturation along specific lineages. Neural stem cells (NSCs) are capable of differentiating into multiple cell types including astrocytes, neurons and oligodendrocytes. During the isolation and expansion of NSCs, the status of stem cells is best evaluated functionally by measuring their ability to differentiate into multiple neural lineages.|
The Mouse/Rat Neural Stem Cell Functional Identification Kit contains specially formulated media supplements, which can be used for the short-term maintenance and expansion of NSCs and the differentiation of NSCs into astrocyte, neuron and oligodendrocyte lineages. An antibody panel consisting of goat anti-rat Nestin, sheep anti-human Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP), mouse anti-Neuron-specific beta-III Tubulin, and mouse anti-Oligodendrocyte Marker O4 are also included to identify the phenotypes of neural precursors, astrocytes, neurons and oligodendrocytes.
