In order to establish a simple and highly purified method for primary culture of mouse dorsal root ganglion neurons(DRGn), in this study, the DRGn of young mice were obtained by collagenase type I and trypsin digestion. Then the DRGn were obtained by immunocytochemical staining of mouse neuron specific enolase (NSE) monoclonal antibody, while using flow cytometry to further detect the positive rates of DRGn. The cultured primary DRGn grew well and had a purity of about 83.72%. The DRGn survival time was 60 days when cultured in DMEM medium containing nerve growth factor (NGF). The culture scheme is simple and stable, and a large number of high purity DRGn could be cultured, which provides a reliable model for further study of nerve cells.
