Human iPSC-derived Oligodendrocyte Progenitor Cells (OPCs)


Human iPSC-derived Oligodendrocyte Progenitor Cells (OPCs)

Oligodendrocytes belong to the family of glial cells in the human central and peripheral nervous system. They are multifunctional cells and are implicated in many disabling neurological disorders, including adult-onset demyelinating disorders, as well as leukodystrophies and cerebral palsy.

Tempo’s iOligo™ are induced oligodendrocyte progenitors reprogrammed from human fibroblasts cells using a proprietary reprogramming technology. iOligo™ cells are cryopreserved at low passage numbers. Each vial contains ~1.05 x 106 cells. iOligo™ cells are characterized via standard morphological examinations and via immunocytochemistry methods against known marker proteins (such as O4, PDGFalphaR, NG2, and CNPase) and can be induced to express MBP upon T3 hormone induction
