Multicolor Labeling of Pluripotent Stem Cells


Haiting Ma, Jaenisch Lab


This image shows human pluripotent stem cells randomly expressing fluorescent proteins of different colors and subcellular localizations. The picture was taken to assess how random cells decide which fluorescent protein to express. I tried to assess the distribution of different fluorescent proteins in a colony of human pluripotent stem cells. This image demonstrates that it would be feasible to label human pluripotent stem cells with different fluorescent proteins for applications such as tracking cell behaviors during processes such as differentiation.
