Abstract

Neural precursor cells (NPCs) are a renewable cell source that can proliferate and expand for long periods of time and give rise to the main neural cell types of the central nervous system (CNS). Establishing simple and reproducible growth culture conditions is of great importance to study the biology of NPCs and to understand the molecular basis of their behavior in healthy and diseased conditions.Here, we describe a simple free-floating , serum-free culture condition, known as the neurosphere assay, which is the most commonly used method for the isolation and expansion of NPCs harvested from the adult and fetal CNS. This culture system will result in large numbers of undifferentiated NPC progenies that represents a useful cell source for many in vitro and in vivo applications. CI - (c) 2022.
