Background: SSEA-1

Stage-Specific Embryonic Antigen-1 (SSEA-1), an antigenic epitope defined as a Lewis x carbohydrate structure, is expressed during early mouse embryogenesis on murine embryonal carcinoma cells (EC), murine embryonic stem cells (ES), and murine and human germ cells. Expression of SSEA-1 is down-regulated following differentiation of murine EC and ES cells. In contrast, the differentiation of human EC and ES cells is accompanied by an increase in SSEA-1 expression (1, 2).

Human/Mouse SSEA-1 Antibody
By Julieta O'Flaherty on 12/11/2020
Application: ICC/IF Sample Tested: iPS2 human induced pluripotent stem cells Species: Human

I used to check whether SSEA-1 is expressed in my iPSCs and it was great.. no background signal
