Immunofluorescent analysis of TRA-1-81 using anti-TRA-1-81 monoclonal antibody (Product# MA1-024) shows expression in human teratocarcinoma NCCIT cells (shown in green) but not in negative control HeLa cells. Formalin fixed cells were permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in TBS for 10 minutes at room temperature. Cells were blocked with 1% Blocker BSA (Product #37525) for 15 minutes at room temperature. Cells were probed with a mouse monoclonal antibody recognizing TRA-1-81 (Product# MA1-024), at a dilution of 1:50 for at least 1 hour at room temperature. Cells were washed with PBS and incubated with goat-anti-mouse IgM secondary antibody at a dilution of 1:400 for 30 minutes at room temperature. Nuclei (blue) were stained with Hoechst 33342 dye (Product# 62249). Images were taken on a Thermo Scientific ArrayScan at 20X magnification.

TRA-1-81 is a cell surface antigen expressed along with SSEA-3, SSEA-4 and TRA-1-60 in human embryonic stem cells, embryonal carcinoma cells and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS). These surface markers are down-regulated during the differentiation process. In contrast, SSEA-1 is absent in undifferentiated human stem cells but is present on the cell surface after retinoic acid mediated differentiation.
