SSEA-1 is expressed on the surface of early mouse embryos, murine embryonal carcinoma cells (EC), murine embryonic stem cells (ES) and murine & human germ cells (EG). No immunoreactivity is evident with undifferentiated human EC and ES cells. Expression of SSEA-1 is down regulated following differentiation of murine EC and ES cells. In contrast, the differentiation of human EC and ES cells is characterized by an increase in SSEA-1 expression.
This antibody reacts with the Stage-specific embryonic antigen-1 (SSEA-1) that is expressed upon the surface of early mouse embryos, murine embryonal carcinoma cells (EC), murine embryonic stem cells (ES) and murine & human germ cells (EG).
F9 tetracarcinoma stem cells (X-irradiated).
