Data Sheet

Human Schwann Cells (HSC) provided by Innoprot are isolated by ScienCell Research Laboratories from human spinal nerves. HSC are cryopreserved at passage one and delivered frozen.

Innoprot also offers optimized medium and reagents for the growth of Human Schwann Cells which are quality tested together and guaranteed to give maximum performance as a global solution for in vitro Schwann cells culture.



Schwann cells are neural crest derivatives that ensheathe and myelinate axons of peripheral nerves. They wrap individually around the shaft of peripheral axons, forming myelin sheath along segments of the axon. Schwann cells play important roles in the development, function and regeneration of peripheral nerves. Their proliferation in vitro can be stimulated by growth factors including PDGF, FGF, neuregulin and others. The Schwann cells provide a relatively simple, well-defined and accessible mammalian model for the study of a number of developmental questions. It is also of particular clinical importance to understand the biology of Schwann cells, not only in the context of neuropathies and nerve regeneration, but also because the cells or their precursor might be especially well suited as implants to facilitate repair in the CNS.
