Thus, it can be concluded that AAGP®’s apparent protection against cell death in low-density mouse neural stem cells is affective when cells are exposed to 4°C refrigeration as well as Cryopreservation. In addition, this mechanism of cell protection does not appear to affect the functionality of the stem cells. It could be said that this makes AAGP® an attractive additive in the preservation media of stem cells for transplants where only a low density of cells can be extracted. These experiments will need to be completed in other cell lines.
