Method for Primary Epithelial Cell Culture from the Rat Choroid Plexus
Authors:  Valeria Lallai, Amina Ahmed and Christie D. Fowler, date: 02/20/2020, view: 2620, Q&A: 0
The choroid plexus consists of a network of secretory epithelial cells localized throughout the lateral, third and fourth ventricles of the brain. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is generated by the choroid plexus and released into the ventricular ...
