This study reports the composition of a chemically defined medium (DDM1) that supports the survival and differentiation of neurons in dissociated cell cultures prepared from midgastrula stage Drosophila embryos. Cells with neuronal morphology that stain with a neural-specific marker are clearly differentiated by 1 day in vitro and can be maintained in culture for up to 2 weeks. Although the whole cell capacitance measurements from neurons grown in DDM1 were 5- to 10-fold larger than those of… CONTINUE READING
