Neural stem cells not only serve as a important source for study of development, pathogenesis, regeneration, and rehabilitation of the nervous system, but also are a promising treatment modality for diseases associated with the nervous system. Alstem's hNSC11 cell lines possess the following features:

  • Derived from footprint-free human iPS cells
  • Homogeneous population
  • Can differentiate to over 90% of neurons under defined conditions
  • Off the shelf - simple thaw the cells and plate them onto serum-free, feeder-free culture

Neural stem cells (NSCs) are neural progenitor cells that are capable of differentiating to different kinds of cells in the nervous system when under defined conditions. Taking advantage of their consistent propagation, NSCs have great potential for the study of neurogenesis, neurodegenerative diseases, and clinical transplantation applications. Alstem's human Neural Stem Cell Line (Cat# hNSC11) is derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells, which are generated from neonatal foreskin fibroblasts using Alstem’s unique footprint-free episomal iPSC reprogramming method. These cells are able to proliferate regularly without differentiating to neural lineage cells when cultured in bFGF and EGF containing medium.
