Mounting evidence suggests that most tumors consist of a heterogeneous population of cells with a subset population that has the exclusive tumorigenic ability. They are called cancer stem cells (CSCs). CSCs can self-renew to generate additional CSCs and also differentiate to generate phenotypically diverse cancer cells with limited proliferative potential. They have been identified in a variety of tumors. In this study, we identify the marker of CSCs in the established human laryngeal tumor Hep-2 cell line in vivo. Our in vitro experiment shown as CD133, a 5-transmembrane glycoprotein expressed in Hep-2 cell line. CD133 was supposed as a candidate of CSC in laryngeal carcinoma. In this study, the expression of CD133 was detected in a Hep-2 cell line. Applying the magnetic cell sorting (MACS) technology, we reported the results of purifying CD133 positive cells from a Hep-2 cell line. Three-type cells' tumor-forming ability was examined in vivo to identify the marker of CSCs in Hep-2 cell line.
