Adult astrocyte characterization, isolation, and cultivation

Adult astrocyte characterization, isolation, and cultivation

About the webinar

Dr. Melanie Jungblut, co-author of the paper “Anti-ACSA-2 defines a novel monoclonal antibody for prospective isolation of living neonatal and adult astrocytes” published in Glia recently, will give a presentation and discuss with you about: 

  1. Generation of astrocyte-specific antibodies
  2. Features of astrocyte cell surface antigen-2 (ACSA-2), e.g. its expression pattern at different developmental stages and in different brain regions compared to other neural cell markers
  3. Integration of the Anti-ACSA-2 antibody into a complete workflow to study adult rodent brain – from sample preparation and cell isolation to cultivation and immunofluorescence analysis as well as flow cytometry
  4. Isolation of neonatal and adult astrocytes using Anti-ACSA-2 MicroBeads for transcriptome analysis by single cell mRNA sequencing 


Presenters: Melanie Jungblut, PhD, and Hui Demuth-Zhang, PhD, Miltenyi Biotec, Germany
