iCell® DopaNeurons

Go Straight to the Source of Human Disease Biology

CDI’s iPS cell platform uniquely enables the large-scale manufacture of iCell® DopaNeurons, human floor plate-derived midbrain DA neurons. Only DA neurons derived from the floor plate are the only DA neurons that have been shown to engraft in animals, making them a leading candidate for use in clinical applications.

Best-in-Class Biology

iCell DopaNeurons exhibit the relevant biology and functionality to advance research and preclinical studies for devastating neurological disorders:

  • Fully differentiated, >80% pure midbrain DA neurons
  • Expression of relevant midbrain DA neuron markers (e.g. Lmx1, FoxA2, and TH)
  • Functional release and uptake of dopamine
  • Appropriate electrophysiology and pacemaker-like activity:
    • Spontaneous and evoked action potentials
    • Excitatory post-synaptic currents
    • Sodium ion and potassium ion channel currents
  • Compatible with a wide range of biochemical and cell-based assays:
    • Cell viability
    • Cell mitophagy
    • Calcium signaling
    • Neurite outgrowth and retraction
