Product Description

Excitation and inhibition are the two basic interactions between neurons, which utilize glutamate and γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) as the major neurotransmitters for excitatory and inhibitory signals, respectively. Abnormal GABAergic neuron function has been associated with multiple neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders.

iXCells™ Cortical GABAergic Neurons show high neuronal purity (>90% Tuj1 positive cells) and express typical marker GABA (Figure 1 and Figure 2) after culturing in the Cortical Neuron Maintenance Medium (Cat# MD-0093) for 5 days.

iXCells also provide customized differentiation service with your own iPS cell lines.  Please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more details.
