Abstract

Oligodendrocytes were isolated from adult human brains obtained at autopsy. The cells were prepared by Percoll density gradient centrifugation, seeded on plastic coverslips and were cultured for a period up to 6 months. The oligodendrocytes in culture expressed cell-type specific markers, galactocerebroside and myelin basic protein and revealed the ultrastructure of mature oligodendrocytes.
