NEUROBASAL and NEUROBASAL -A must be supplemented with N2 orB27 and 0.5 mM L-glutamine. For the initial plating of embryonic primaryhippocampal neurons, it is suggested that 25 µM (3.7 µg/mL) glutamatebe added to the NEUROBASAL medium. Both media support the growthof nearly pure populations of neural cells without the need of an astrocytefeeder layer. Both media, when supplemented with B27, contain anti- EUROBASAL
oxidants to reduce reactive oxygen damage and they do not contain theexcitatory amino acids, glutamate and aspartate, making it amenable to thestudy of these neurotransmitters.
Serum-free basal medium for the long-term viability of hippocampal and other neurons of the CNS. Cell Plating:
a. Autoclaved glass coverslips (12 mm diameter Assistant brand from
Carolina Biological) previously coated with 50 µg/mL poly-D-lysine in water (135 kD, Sigma) should be applied overnight, aspirated, rinsed once with water and allowed to dry one hour.
b. Cells are plated at the desired concentration (i.e. 90-320 cells/mm2) in NEUROBASALTM
c. One hour after plating and incubation (ambient oxygen with 5 % CO2 is Medium without

NEUROBASAL -A/B27 in a 24-well plate at 370 C. For postnatal neurons, the medium is aspirated, the coverslips rinsed once with NEUROBASALTMA

streptomycin (Cat. No. 15070) and 5 ng/mL β-FGF (Cat. No. 13256).
d. When culturing the cells for longer than 4 days, one-half of the medium is removed on day 3 or 4 and replaced with an equal volume ofmedium now containing 10 ng/mL β-FGF (postnatal neurons).
Prior to use, NEUROBASAL media must be supplemented with 0.5 mM L-glutamine for primary cells and 2.0 mM L-glutamine for neuronal Subsequent medium changes for prenatal neurons (4 days) should be phenotype tumor cells or neural stem cells. In addition, either a serum- made with NEUROBASAL without glutamate, to reduce glutamate free supplement or serum needs to be added. Recommended supplement toxicity in the culture. With neuroblastomas, the glutamate should be is B-27 Supplement (Cat. No. 17504) for hippocampal and other CNS included in the medium for both plating and subsequent media neurons. For embryonic neurons the addition of 25 uM glutamic acid is also recommended for the plating step. For neural stem cells N-2 Improved long-term survival of hippocampal neurons may be obtained by Supplement (Cat. No. 17502) or B-27 Supplement without retinoic acid(Cat. No. 12587) is recommended. For tumor cell lines of glial origin G-5 the addition of 2-mercaptoethanol (Cat. No. 21985) at 25 µM4.
