Phenotype and functional properties of pancreatic CSC populations

StudyPhenotypeProperties
Li et al. (5)CD44+CD24+ESA+Increased Sonic Hedgehog expression
Hermann et al. (7)CD133+Chemoresistant; CD133+CXCR4+ cells responsible for metastasis
Rasheed et al. (6)ALDH+CSCs associated with overall survival; CSCs exhibit mesenchymal features and are frequently found in metastatic lesions
Ishizawa et al. (25)ALDH+ and CD44+CD24+ cells are equally tumorigenic
Li et al. (22)CD44+c-Met+Highly metastatic
