Simple methods for obtention of primary cultures of isolated astrocytes and microglia from adult simian brain have been developed. Characterization of these two glial cell populations were performed by morphological observations and by immunocytochemistry. The astroglial cultures were obtained by an indirect method. After L-leucine methyl-ester treatment… (More)
