Human Schwann Cells

Human Schwann Cells (HSC) provided by Innoprot are isolated from human spinal nerve. HSC are cryopreserved at passage one and delivered frozen. Each vial of Human Schwann Cells contains more than 500.000 viable cells. They are guaranteed to further expand for 10 population doublings following the instructions provided in the technical sheet.

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 HSC culture.


Size/Quantity: 500.000 Cells / vial

Schwann cells are neural crest derivatives that ensheathe and myelinate axons of peripheral nerves. Each Schwann cell wraps around the shaft of an individual peripheral axon, forming myelin sheaths along segments of the axon. Schwann cells play important roles in the development, function, and regeneration of peripheral nerves. When an axon is dying, the Schwann cells surrounding it aid in its digestion. They leave an empty channel formed by successive Schwann cells; through which a new axon may then grow from a severed end. Human 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 precursors may be especially suitable for implants to facilitate repair in the CNS.
