hNP1 Human Progenitors are fully differentiated are derived as adherent cells from hESC WA09 line. The cells are shipped frozen in a vial with 1 x 106 cells; once thawed they should be immediately plated on a Matrigel (or other suitable extracellular matrix protein)-coated dish and maintained in the accompanying serum-free medium.

Images: hNP1 Human Neural Progenitor Cells are grown as monolayers (A), are karyotypically normal (B) and express NSC markers, Nestin Mouse and Sox-2 (C, D, E).  Nuclei of the cells were visualized with DAPI (blue).  The Sox-2 transcription factor is co-localized with the DAPI (blue) staining in the nucleus (F).

These cells have the capabilties to:

  • Display immunoreactive properties consistent with neural precursors and can be maintained in a proliferative state in monolayer cultures.
  • Differentiate under serum-free conditions into neuronal phenotypes with functionally responsive transmitter receptors in vitro-for example for differentiating cell into sensory neurons see: http://
  • Maintain multiple neural phenotypes in long term serum-free culture.
  • Can be directed to alter phenotypic characteristics under different media conditions.

Applications: Gene Expression Analysis Western blotting, Flow Cytometry, Immunocytochemistry, FACS sorting, DNA Microarray, RT-PCR, Neurite Outgrowth assays, FLIPR calcium assays, cytotoxicity, and second messenger signaling.

Component Storage Conditions
1 Vial Cells Liquid Nitrogen
500 ml AB2TM Basal Medium 2-8 ºC protected from light
2X5 ml ANSTM <-20 ºC; if it thaws, store at 2-8 ºC; do NOT refreeze

Please note: There is enough media included to keep the cells viable for up to 1 month.


Note: hNP1TM Progenitors and hN2TM Human Neurons can be genetically manipulated with GFP reporters without altering the function and differentiation potential of these cells.  In contrast to many stem cell sources, the reporter genes are not readily silence in the neural cultures. See: doi:10.1089/ten.tea.2009.0155.

DNA fingerprint cells:    The loci match the DNA fingerprint pattern for the H9 (NIH designation, WA09) HESC line as published in

Viral tests cells:  This lot was derived from the H9 hESC line that has been tested for Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV-1, HIV-2, HTLV-I/II, HSV1, HSV2, EBV, and CMV. The H9 cell line has been tested and shown to be negative. (Tests performed by GIVF Laboratories).
