CD133 antigen also known as prominin-1 is a glycoprotein that in humans is encoded by the PROM1 gene. It is a pentaspan transmembrane glycoprotein, with highly restricted expression on plasma membrane protrusions of epithelial and other cell types. CD133 is expressed in hematopoietic stem cells, endothelial progenitor cells, glioblastoma, neuronal and glial stem cells, as well as adult kidney, mammary glands, trachea, salivary glands, placenta, digestive tract, and testes. CD133 is used as a main marker for hematopoietic stem cells in transplant models. It has also been described as a marker of tumor initiating cells.
