Description The Neural Stem Cell Expansion Kit - Neurosphere is a system designed for in vitro neural stem cell expansion as neurospheres in a serum free environment. The kit contains a specially formulated N-2 Plus Media Supplement, which has been optimized for neural stem cell expansion (Johe, K.K. et al. (1996) Genes & Development 10:3129). Two growth factors, human epidermal growth factor (EGF) and human fibroblast growth factor basic (FGF basic), are included to promote the in vitroproliferation of neural precursors. The quantity of each component provided in the kit is estimated to be sufficient to make 500 mL of growth medium for cell expansion. This kit is suitable for the neurosphere culture model and is applicable for human, rat and mouse cells. Cells propagated using this kit are Nestin-positive (Lendahl, U. et al. (1990) Cell 60:585) and retain their potency to differentiate into neurons, oligodendrocytes and glia, as identified after growth factor withdrawal by staining with the antibodies Tuj1, O4 and anti-GFAP, respectively.

Neural stem cells (NSCs), with the potential to self-renew and to differentiate into neurons and glial cells, have been isolated from different regions of the developing and adult brain (1 - 6). NSCs can be grown in vitro, in the presence of mitogen, as either monolayer cultures on an adhesive substrate or as free floating spherical aggregates termed 'neurospheres. These in vitro propagated NSCs can proliferate in culture while retaining the potency to differentiate into neurons, oligodendrocytes and glia. in vitro NSC expansion makes it possible to grow sufficient numbers of NSCs for researchers to study basic developmental biology, drug discovery and preclinical neural transplantation.
