Product Description

Astrocytes are the majority cell type of the mammalian brain. Astrocytes have been implicated in a variety of supportive functions for their partner neurons in the CNS, such as neuronal guidance during development, and nutritional and metabolic support throughout life [1]. The functions of astroyctes are also complicated during pathological processes [2]. Numerous studies have demonstrated that astrocytes are among the most functionally diverse group of cells in the CNS [3]. Much of what we have learned about astrocytes is from in vitro studies and astrocytes culture is continually providing a useful tool in exploring the diverse property of astrocytes.

iXCells Biotechnologies provides high quality Mouse Astrocytes-cerebellar (MA-c), which are isolated from neonate day two mouse brain (cerebellar cortex) and cryopreserved at P1, with >0.5 million cells in each vial. MA-c express GFAP are negative for HIV-1, HBV, HCV, mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast, and fungi. They can further expand for 5 population doublings in Astrocyte Growth Medium-rodent (Cat# MD-0060) under the condition suggested by iXCells Biotechnologies.
