Fluorescence Method Detects Stem Cells
The first fluorescent probe that can be used to detect embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells has been developed (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., DOI: 10.1002/anie.201002463). Stem cells can currently be identified by immunostaining, but that method necessitates time-consuming antibody-based procedures. Young-Tae Chang of the National University of Singapore and coworkers discovered a compound called CDy1 (compound of designation yellow 1) that localizes in and stains embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cells. . . .
