Description

Rat Cerebellar Astrocytes (RCeA) are derived from rat cerebellum. Astrocytes are the most abundant cells in the central nervous system where they perform many functions, such as providing mechanical support and nutrients to neurons and removal of wastes from neurons; providing signaling to endothelial cells; regulating neurogenesis and controlling synaptic function. 
As the recognition of the importance of astrocytes in nervous system is increasing, RCeA serve as a useful in vitro model for exploring the diversity of astrocytes functions.
Characterization:  Stained positive for GFAP (Example image at right shows neonatal Rat Cerebellar Astrocytes: RCeA stained positive for glial fibrillary acidic protein)
A: RCeA culture at second passage, 100x. B: Immunostaining for GFAP (green), DAPI (blue), 100x.
