From: CD133+CXCR4+ colon cancer cells exhibit metastatic potential and predict poor prognosis of patients

Figure 1

CD133 + CXCR4 + cancer cell content is higher in hepatic metastasis than in human primary colorectal tumors. (A) Specimens were digested, stained for CD133 and analyzed by flow cytometry to detect the CD133+ subpopulation in primary and metastatic colorectal cancer as well as their corresponding normal tissues. A representative image is provided in the left panel. Quantification of flow cytometry data is presented in the right panel. (B) To assess the CD133+CXCR4+ subpopulation in human specimens, primary and metastatic colorectal tumors were harvested, digested and double-stained for CD133 and CXCR4, then analyzed by flow cytometry. A representative image is provided in the left panel. Quantification of flow cytometry data is presented in the right panel (n = 9 analyzed patients).
