Neural Stem Cells (NSCs) are multipotent stem cells that can differentiate into many cell types of the neural system, including neurons, astrocytes, oligodendrocytes and etc. NSCs have been isolated from various areas of the adult brain, and non-neurogenic areas, such as the spinal cord. NSCs are able to rebuild functional neural circuits, offering a potential cure for brain tissue impairments, and have being widely studied in animal models for treating neural degenerative diseases, hereditary central nervous system diseases, stroke and spinal cord injuries. Cyagen OriCell SD Rat Neural Stem Cells (NSCs) are derived from brain tissues of SD rat embryos (12.5 dpc), cultured as neurospheres, and cryopreserved at the first passage. These cells express specific clusters of differentiation proteins for NSCs, and have a strong capacity
for self-renewal while maintaining multipotency. They are tested negative for bacteria, fungi, and mycoplasma.
