The TRA-1-60 monoclonal antibody reacts with a pluripotent-stem-cell-specific antigen expressed on undifferentiated human pluripotent stem (PS) cells, embryonal carcinoma (EC) cells, and embryonic germ (EG) cells. The expression of TRA-1-60 on human PS cells is down-regulated upon differentiation.The TRA-1-60 antibody recognizes a neuraminidase-resistant carbohydrate epitope expressed on podocalyxin, a member of the CD34-related family of sialomucins. Podocalyxin is a transmembrane glycoprotein, which has been implicated in the development of aggressiveness in a variety of cancers, including breast and prostate cancer.




Immunocytochemistry analysis of TRA-1-60 on H1 human ES cells. Cells were stained with TRA-1-60 Antibody (Purified) at a 1:100 dilution followed by a secondary Cy 3 antibody (red). DAPI staining was performed to visualize nuclei (blue).
