Detection of Sca‑1/Ly6 in Mouse Splenocytes by Flow Cytometry. Mouse splenocytes gated on hematopoietic lineage negative cells were stained with Rat Anti-Mouse CD117/c-kit PE‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB1356P) and either (A) Rat Anti-Mouse Sca‑1/Ly6 APC‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB1226A) or (B) Rat IgG2A Allophycocyanin Isotype Control (Catalog # IC006A).

Stem Cell Antigen-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).
