Product Description

Cortical neurons make up a large portion of the brain and consist of both glutamateric and GABA-ergic neurons [1]. They play an important role in higher level thought processes and are necessary to organize input from subcortical structures. Like all neurons, these cells transport Na+ that work to propagate action potentials from one cell to the next, which is the basis of a working neural pathway. These cells can be used to study a variety of cortical related abnormalities including Huntington’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, psychiatric disorders, and learning disorders [2, 3].

iXCells Biotechnologies provides high quality Rat Cortical Neurons (RCN), which are isolated from the brains of E16 embryonic rats. These cells are cryopreserved at P0, with ≥ 2 million cells in each vial. They are negative for mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast, and fungi. RCNs can be plated using Rat Cortical Neuron Recovery Medium (Cat# MD-0107A) and maintained in Rat Cortical Neuron Maintenance Medium (Cat# MD-0107B) under the condition suggested by iXCells Biotechnologies.
