Axol Human Cerebral Cortical Neurons
(hCCNs Plated)

Axol Cerebral Cortical neurons, microtiter plate, and protocolAxol hCCNs are derived from integration-free, induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells under fully defined neural induction conditions..

These cells express typical markers of cerebral cortical neurons, such as Tbr1, Ctip2, Brn2 and Cux1 (see below). They are electrically active and able to form functional synapses and circuits in culture. 

Cerebral cortical neurons are implicated in numerous neurological diseases including Alzheimer’s disease, autism, epilepsy and stroke. Despite strong interest in these diseases, high quality human in vitro cell models for cortical neurophysiology have been unavailable until now. With Axol hCCNs, we provide neuroscience researchers with a high quality in vitro human system to complement their existing studies of cortical development, function and diseases using animal models.
