Differentiation of LUHMES cells as a model of human substantia nigra neurons. These human neural precursor cells were immortalized using a Myc oncogene in a Tet-off system; adding tetracycline suppresses the expression of the Myc gene and allows differentiation to occur. Differential interference contrast (DIC) micrographs (100X) of A) undifferentiated LUHMES cells and B) LUHMES cells after 6 days of differentiation. Images by Trevor Tyson of the Coetzee laboratory.
