Tracing the Astroglial Cell-Lineage in Vitro by Modification of the Microenvironmental Conditions
Since the introduction of serum-free, hormone-supplemented media many research reports have shown that it is possible to select one defined cell-type out of a heterogeneously composed organ dissociate. In this paper we will show that not only cell-types can be selectively cultivated, but also different variants of one cell-type (in this case the astrocyte) can be grown selectively and, furthermore, these variants can be interchanged by modification of the medium conditions.
