Brain primary culture - a characterization

Brain Research
E HanssonL Rönnbäck


Primary cultures from rat or mouse brain hemispheres contain predominantly glial cells. These cells accumulated [3H]GABA and showed a specific fluorescence with FITC-labeled anti-S-100 antiserum. Round or elongated cells which reacted positively with antimacrophage antiserum and exhibited phagocytotic activity, were considered mesodermal macrophages. Big flat cells, unreactive to S-100 antiserum or to any other antiserum tested, showed a morphology similar to mesenchymal cells of a low differentiation grade. These cells formed a monolayer upon which other cell types grew. Positive reaction for alkaline phosphatases was used as a criterion to identify endothelial cells, the number of which increased with increasing age of the cultures. Anti-14-3-2 antiserum gave no specific reaction, indicating the presence of very few or no differentiated neurons in the cultures.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection

Lipidomics can be used to examine the lipid species involved with pathogenic conditions, such as viral associated inflammation. Discovered the latest research on Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection.
