Tumors have been known to contain a small population of cancer stem cells that initiate tumor growth and promote tumor spreading. CD133 alone or in combination with other markers is currently being used for identification and isolation of the putative cancer stem cell population from malignant tumors. To determine whether the CD133+ cells constitute the stem cell populations of lung cancer cells A549 and H446, CD133+ and CD133- subpopulations were sorted from A549 and H446 cells by magnetic… CONTINUE READING
