Imunofluorescent analysis of TRA-1-81 (green) in human episomal iPSC cells. Cells were grown on vitronectin coated plates, fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde for 15 minutes, and blocked with 3% Blocker BSA (Product # 37525) for 30 minutes at room temperature. Cells were stained with DyLight 488-conjugated TRA-1-81 monoclonal antibody (left panels, Product # MA1-024-D488) or DyLight 488-conjugated Mouse IgM isotype control antibody (top right panel, Product # MA1-194-D488), at a dilution of 1:250 and incubated for 1 hour at room temperature. Nuclei (blue) were stained with Hoechst 33342 dye (Product # 62249). Images were taken on an EVOS FL Imaging system 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.
