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 Biotinylated Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # BAF1226) for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained with the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Streptavidin (red; Catalog # NL999) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

Sca-1 is an 18 kDa phosphatidylinositol-anchored protein that is a member of the lymphocyte antigen 6 (Ly-6) family. 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 HSCs in mice of both Ly-6 haplotypes. Sca-1-positive HSCs can be found in the adult bone marrow, fetal liver, and mobilized peripheral blood and spleen in the adult animal. However, Sca-1 has also been discovered in several non-hematopoietic tissues and can be used to enrich other progenitor cell populations as well. It is suggested that Sca-1 could be involved in regulating both B and T cell activation.
