CD24+/CD44+ melanoma tumor cells

Gene Name

Related Disease

  • Melanoma tumor [ref.1]

Therapy Method


The melanoma tumor cell subpopulations were analyzed and sorted according to the expression of CD24 and CD44 markers. They were classified into four groups, including CD44+/CD24+, CD44+/CD24, CD44/CD24+ and CD44/CD24. Regarding the higher tumorigenic and spheroid formation abilities of CD24+/CD44+ double-positive cells, they were considered as melanoma stem cells and used for immunotherapy.
