Autonomic and sensory neuron cultures. Book uri icon


  • This chapter has provided a rather detailed protocol for the dissection, dissociation, and culture of autonomic and sensory neurons from the chicken embryo. These protocols are by no means absolute. Many other laboratories that routinely culture these neurons may use techniques that differ significantly from the ones detailed in this chapter. All of the protocols described in this chapter can also be applied to quail embryos, which develop more rapidly but are of comparable size to chicken embryos until about E9. The list of suppliers for the various reagents described in these protocols is also limited. Many other vendors of cell culture products are probably equally reliable.
