Recent Publication with hNP1™ Human Neural Progenitor Cells

Featured Publication:
This publication demonstrates the sensitivity of neural progenitor cells to chemical induced apoptosis.
I Druwe, TM Freudenrich, K Wallace, TJ Shafer... - Toxicology, 2015

Summary: The results demonstrate that, (1) all three commercially available models generated a robust source of proliferating neuroprogenitor cells, and that the assay was sensitive and reproducible when used in a multi-well plate format; (2) there were differences in the response of the rodent and human neuroprogenitor cells to a set of chemicals previously shown to induce apoptosis in vitro; and (3) proliferating neuroprogenitor cells were more sensitive to chemical-induced apoptosis than differentiated neurons, suggesting that neuroprogenitor cells are one of the cell models that should be considered for use in a developmental neurotoxicity screening battery.
