StemMACS™ NeuroD1 mRNA, human

StemMACS™ NeuroD1 mRNA, human

StemMACS™ NeuroD1 mRNA encodes the neural transcription factor NeuroD1 for transient transfection.


  • Neuronal differentiation of pluripotent stem cells1,2
  • Conversion of fibroblasts into induced neuronal (iN) cells3

Background information

NeuroD1 is a member of the basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) family of transcription factors. It forms heterodimers with other bHLH proteins and activates transcription by binding to the E-box motif. NeuroD1 is a regulator of insulin expression. In pluripotent stem cell research, ectopic expression of NeuroD1 has been used to induce neuronal differentiation.

Detailed procedure

For satisfactory transfection results, use a transfection protocol optimized for your specific cell type. StemMACS™ eGFP mRNA or StemMACS™ Nuclear eGFP mRNA allow easy evaluation of transfection efficiency and are recommended as positive controls.

Quality description

StemMACS™ mRNAs are highly pure, in vitro-transcribed mRNAs that have been carefully optimized to ensure high level expression after transfection. Polyadenylation and enzymatic cap mimic a fully processed mature mRNA and ensure efficient translation. Incorporation of the modified nucleotides pseudouridine and 5-methylcytidine reduces the innate antiviral response to single-stranded mRNA. Robust expression of the encoded factor after transfection has been verified by immunofluorescence or flow cytometry.
StemMACS™ mRNAs are lyophilized from a 0.2 µM filtered solution for extended shelf-life.
