Immunocytochemistry SSEA‑4 antibody in BG01V Human Stem Cells by Immunocytochemistry (ICC). View Larger

SSEA‑4 in BG01V Human Stem Cells. SSEA‑4 was detected in immersion fixed BG01V human embryonic stem cells cultured on irradiated mouse embryonic fibroblasts (Catalog # PSC001) using 10 µg/mL Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse SSEA‑4 Biotinylated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # BAM1435) for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained with the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Streptavidin (red; Catalog # NL999) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

Background: SSEA-4

SSEA-4 is expressed on the surface of human embryonal carcinoma (EC) cells (the pluripotent stem cells of teratocarcinomas), human embryonic germ cells (EG), and human embryonic stem cells (ES). Expression of SSEA-4 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-4 expression (1-4).
