SSEA‑3 in BG01V Human Stem Cells. SSEA‑3 was detected in immersion fixed non-permeabilized BG01V human embryonic stem cells using Human/Mouse SSEA‑3 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1434) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (yellow; Catalog # NL013) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

SSEA-3, also known as glycolipid GB5, is expressed on the surface of human teratocarcinoma stem cells (EC), human embryonic germ cells (EG), and human embryonic stem cells (ES) (1). Expression of SSEA-3 is down regulated following differentiation of human EC cells. In contrast, the differentiation of murine EC and ES cells may be accompanied by an increase in SSEA-3 expression (2, 3).
