Cerebellar granule cells (CGC) are the most abundant neurons in the brain. Their axons run as parallel fibres along the coronal axis.
Human Cerebellar granule cells (HCGC) are isolated from human cerebellum. HCGC are cryopreserved at P0 and delivered frozen.
Each vial contains 1 million cells in 1 ml volume.
HCGC are characterized by immunofluorescence with antibodies specific to neurofilament, MAP2, and β-tubulin III.
HCGC are negative for HIV-1, HBV, HCV, mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast, and fungi.
HCGC are guaranteed to further culture under the conditions provided.
However, HCGC are not recommended for expanding or longterm cultures since the cells do not proliferate in culture.
It is recommended to use Neuronal Medium (NM, Cat. SC1521) for culturing HCGC in vitro.
HCGC are for research use only. They are not approved for human or animal use, or for application in in vitro diagnostic procedures.
Upon receiving, directly and immediately transfer the cells from dry ice to liquid nitrogen and keep the cells in liquid nitrogen until they are needed for experiments.
