Isolation of Adult Human Astrocyte Populations from Fresh-frozen Cortex using Fluorescence-Activated Nuclei Sorting

Isolation of Adult Human Astrocyte Populations from Fresh-frozen Cortex using Fluorescence-Activated Nuclei Sorting

The complexity of human astrocytes stays poorly outlined in major human tissue, requiring higher instruments for his or her isolation and molecular characterization. Fluorescence-activated nuclei sorting (FANS) can be utilized to efficiently isolate and examine human neuronal nuclei (NeuN+) populations from frozen archival tissue, thereby avoiding issues related to dealing with recent tissue. Nonetheless,...
