Description

Human iPSC-Derived Neural Stem Cells (i-HNSC) are a homogeneous, self-renewing and multipotent population derived from control Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (HiPSC). Under controlled conditions, i-HNSC possess the ability to consistently generate high yields of functional neural cells like neurons and glia. These i-HNSC provide researchers a unique model to study neural development, neurotoxicity, differentiation, electrophysiology, and disease modeling.
Video: Multi-electrode array of i-HNSC-derived Neurons. Real-time MEA shows mature, synchronized networks, optimal electrophysiology & activity that can be modulated by neurotransmitters, small compounds.
Figure: Differentiation potential of iPSC-Derived Human Neural Stem Cells: In optimal differentiation conditions, i-HNSC differentiate into neurons (microtubule-associated protein - MAP2) and astrocytes (Glial fibrillary acidic protein - GFAP). Nuclear staining with DAPI is included as a reference.
Human iPSC-Derived Neural Stem Cells represent a physiologically relevant model. The discovery of safe and effective medicines depends on neuronal models with physiological and pharmacological properties resembling mature neurons in the human brain.  Functionally mature human iPSC-derived neurons are essential to development of cell-based models with increased physiological relevance.  Human iPSC-derived neurons and astrocytes, when co-cultured in vitro, enhance neuron phenotypic maturation and long-term survival1,2,3.  When cultured in defined differentiation media4, our i-HNSCs naturally generate a balanced population of neurons and astrocytes, providing a unique model that more closely resembles normal human brain physiology.  i-HNSC and neurons derived from them are useful for drug screening and cell-based research & discovery. Next-generation manufacturing permits large quantities of cells to be produced from a single lot (donor) in a short period of time.
Characterization. i-HNSC express typical markers of neural stem and progenitor cells such as Nestin and Sox1 with a purity greater than 90%. They are completely validated for viability, differentiation potential, karyotype, morphology, passage number, and sterility.
