Q:

Are there any effects on the differentiation of neural stem cells following Nucleofection™?

A:

The ability of transfected rat or mouse neural stem cells to be subsequently differentiated into a variety of cell types is well documented in:

  • Olig2 Overexpression Induces the In Vitro Differentiation of Neural Stem Cells into Mature Oligodendrocytes
    [Copray et al. (2006) Stem Cells 24(4): 1001-1010].
