Human Dopaminergic Neuronal Precursor Cells (HDNPC) are isolated from human healthy brain tissue. These cells are cryopreserved at passage one and delivered frozen, with each vial containing over 500,000 viable cells. They are guaranteed to expand for up to 5 population doublings when following the instructions provided in the technical sheet.

Human Dopaminergic Neuron Cells

Dopamine, a neurotransmitter extensively studied for its role in various mental and neurological disorders, is primarily produced by midbrain dopaminergic neurons within the mammalian central nervous system. Originally, the identification and localization of these neurons were achieved using the Falck-Hillarp histofluorescence method, which involves the visualization of fluorescent monoamines post-formaldehyde treatment .


Dopaminergic neurons are a heterogeneous group both anatomically and functionally, found in regions such as the diencephalon, mesencephalon, and olfactory bulb (Björklund & Lindvall, in press). The largest cluster of dopaminergic cells is situated in the ventral mesencephalon, constituting approximately 90% of the total dopaminergic cell population in the brain.
