Stem cells are usually defined functionally by their ability to proliferate for an extended time and to differentiate from unspecialized cells into specific cell types. In addition, stem cell populations are identified by the expression, or lack of expression, of various markers. Listed below are antibodies from GeneTex’s stem cell catalog that are valuable tools for the characterization and isolation of stem cells. The tables list representative markers for embryonic, neural, hematopoietic, and mesenchymal stem cell populations and appropriate reagents to detect these factors (1,2).
