Non-adherent suspension culture combined with apoptosis inducement for screening of cancer stem cells

  Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are considered as “tumorigenic cells” which possess stem cell properties of self-renewal and multi-directional differentiation. Therefore, the isolation and identification of CSCs are of great significance for cancer research and cancer therapy. However, isolation and identification of CSCs remain still very difficult. According to characteristics of CSCs, we presumed that...
