These cells contain the subpopulation of normal breast epithelium with the broadest lineage differentiation potential and greatest growth capacity in a xenotransplant model. In breast carcinomas, high ALDH activity identifies the tumorigenic cell fraction, capable of self-renewal and of generating tumors which recapitulate the heterogeneity of the parental tumor. In a series of breast carcinomas, expression of ALDH1 detected by immunostaining correlated with poor prognosis. These findings offer an important new tool for the study of normal and malignant breast stem cells and facilitate the clinical application of stem cell concepts.

To circumvent these issues, we derived MSCs from transgene-free human induced pluripotent stem cells iPSCs efficiently with a modified protocol that eliminated the need of flow cytometric sorting. Hanke M et al. Kut Q et al. Using various strategies to block neutrophil recruitment to the pre-metastatic site, we demonstrate that neutrophils specifically support metastatic initiation. Other ALDH inhibitors can aldeflior used as appropriate for the enzyme isoform expressed.
For nonhematopoietic cells optimal incubation times may be different. Lo JF et al. Human stem and progenitor cells typically have more ALDH activity than mature cells, and this quantitative difference allows stem cells to be resolved from the other cells. Rasper M et al. Br J Haematol Stem Cells 27 We demonstrate that a subpopulation of dormant tumour cells surviving oncogene ablation surviving cells and responsible for tumour relapse has features of cancer stem cells and relies on oxidative phosphorylation for survival.
Xie X et al. Wang L et al. Storms RW et al. We suggest a range of concentrations from 5-fold less to fold more than the standard concentration. Increasing cell concentrations greater than 5-fold the recommended concentration will decrease assay signal and thereby decrease discrimination of the ALDHbr aldefpuor. A lack of difference between test and negative control samples may indicate that the inhibitor was not effective, or that there is no ALDH activity in the cells in the sample.

Will this cause a problem? No, the reagents in the kit are stable to freezing. Assay performance will not be affected. This is not recommended. The assay buffer incorporates an efflux pump inhibitor to produce optimal discrimination of the ALDHbr cells and to maximize fluorescent signal stability. Not using the assay buffer produces a proportionate loss in the assay signal, depending on the time and temperature at which the stained cells are held.
