cell line for neurodevelopment (View forum version)


Posted 14 May 2009 - 12:04 AM


I am interested in neurodevelopment and I am planning an experiment about it but I couldn't decide the appropiate cell type. Which cell type is more proper for studying expression profile of neurodevelopmental genes?

PC12 (pheochromocytoma of rat adrenal medulla) or P19 (murine embrional carcinoma stem cell line)?

I would be glad if anyone can help me.

Thank you

You could also try F-11 cells, they're embryonic neurons.

You could also consider IMR-32 or SK-N-SH, which are both human neuroblastoma lines.
