What is G Culture?
G culture refers to a set of experimental conditions that are designed to preserve the original phenotype of cells. It was developed in response to the need to separate crystallized intelligence (gc) from fluid intelligence (gf).
While basal media like DMEM and DMEM/F12 were originally developed to culture fibroblasts, epithelial, and blood cells, they are not ideal for brain cell cultures. Therefore, specific supplements were developed to meet the needs of neuronal cells such as Neurobasal medium.
