Co-expression of OCT-4 and NUMB in dividing stem cells. OCT-4 was used as a stem cell marker and NUMB as a marker specific for progenitor cells that arise by asymmetric cell division (ACD) from stem cells. a ACD was clearly observed wherein the stem cells expressed OCT-4 and NUMB was asymmetrically expressed specifically by the slightly bigger progenitor cell. Stem cells undergoing (b, c) symmetric divisions and (d) clonal expansion expressed NUMB. e Negative control with omission of primary antibodies
