The pluripotency and high proliferative capacity of embryonic stem (ES) cells make them an attractive source of different cell types for biomedical research and cell replacement therapies. It has been demonstrated that ES cells can be induced into neural precursor cells (NPCs) under conditions. NPCs can be expanded in large numbers for significant periods of time to provide a reliable source of cells for transplantation in neurodegenerative disorders and injury of the central nervous system. This study describes a modified method for generation of NPCs from cultured mouse ES cells.
