The application of glial and neuronal cell culture techniques for the analysis of their cellular and molecular properties has become a promising tool in biomedical sciences and drug development. In addition to neurons, the mammalian brain contains three main types of glial cells: astrocytes, oligodendrocytes and microglia. Glial cells significantly contribute to the health and disease state of the central nervous system (CNS) and a number of neurodegenerative disorders have been associated with glial cell dysfunction. It is now evident that the majority of neurodegenerative diseases are associated with oligodendrocyte dysfunction and/or damage.
Oligodendrocytes are the minor (2-5% of the brain cell population) and most sensitive cell type in the CNS. Their isolation and culture is the object of long-lasting frustrating efforts of neuroscientists to obtain high-yield, pure and viable cell populations in a short period of time.
