Nuwacell® hPSC-Motor Neuron Differentiation Kit（RP01018）, originally developed by Nuwacell Biotechnologies Co., Ltd. is suitable for the highly effective differentiation of human pluripotent stem cells (hPSC) into motor neurons. The differentiated motor neurons can express motor neuron-specific markers (e.g., ChAT, MAP2, Synapyophysin, etc.), and have the characteristic electrophysiological activity. These differentiated motor neurons are suitable for in vitro studies and cell transplantation studies in disease animal models.
