Astrocytes are the major cell type and among the most functionally diverse group of cells in the mammalian brain. They provide a variety of supportive functions to their partner neurons in the central nervous system (CNS); such as neuronal guidance during development, and nutritional and metabolic support throughout life. Human Astrocytes play important roles in various pathological processes. Impairment of normal astrocyte functions during stroke and other insults can critically influence neuron survival. Long-term recovery after brain injury, through neurite outgrowth, synaptic plasticity, or neuron regeneration, is also related to astrocyte surface molecule expression and trophic factor release. Much of what we have learned about astrocytes is from in vitro studies and astrocyte culture is a useful tool for exploring the diverse properties of this cell type. They are also very useful cells to stablish disease models for High Throughput and Hight Content Screening.
Human Astrocytes (HA) provided by Innoprot are isolated from human healthy brain (cerebral cortex). HA are cryopreserved at passage one and delivered frozen. We offer different sizes of vials of Human Astrocytes: vials of 1 million, 5 million and 10 million cells. They are guaranteed to further expand for 15 population doublings following the instructions provided in the technical sheet.
Innoprot also offers optimized medium and reagents for the growth of Human Astrocytes which are quality tested together and guaranteed to give maximum performance as a global solution for in vitro HA culture.
