The proper balance between a symmetric and asymmetric cell division is crucial for the neural stem cell maintenance both in vitro and in vivo. These conditions are provided by specific regions of the brain called neural stem cell niches and in vitro occur in neurospheres or adherent clones. A method and a tool for cell culture growth monitoring applied in the investigation of the clonally growth of HUCB-NSC (Human Umbilical Cord Blood derived Neural Stem Cells) line, as an in vitro model of the neural stem cell niche, is proposed.
