|Sca‑1/Ly6 in Mouse Splenocytes. Sca‑1/Ly6 was detected in immersion fixed mouse splenocytes using 10 µg/mL Goat Anti-Mouse Sca‑1/Ly6 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1226) for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained with the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL001) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

This antibody reacts with Sca-1, an 18 kDa phosphatidylinositol-anchored protein that is a member of the lymphocyte antigen 6 (Ly-6) family (1). Sca-1 is encoded by the strain-specific Ly-6 E/A allelic gene. Its expression on multipotent hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) has been used as a marker of HSC in mice of both Ly‑6 haplotypes (2, 3). This antibody is frequently used in combination with lineage depletion antibodies to identify and isolate murine HSC. Sca-1-positive HSC can be found in the adult bone marrow, fetal liver and mobilized peripheral blood and spleen in the adult animal (2‑7). However, Sca-1 has also been discovered in several non‑hematopoietic tissues (1) and can be used to enrich progenitor cell populations other than HSC (8). It is suggested that Sca-1 could be involved in regulating both B and T cell activation (9‑12).
