Anti-LGR5 MicroBeads, human

Anti-LGR5 MicroBeads, human

Positive selection or depletion of cells expressing human LGR5 antigen, such as colon cancer stem cells, or stem cells from the small intestine, colon, hair follicle, etc.

Background information

LGR5 positive cells were also shown to be crucial during the development and progression of cancer. It was shown that LGR5 crypt stem cells are the cells-of-origin in intestinal cancer and that CSCs in human colorectal cancer can be identified and isolated based on LGR5 expression.
LGR5 associates with Wnt-receptors and act as R-spondin receptor thereby playing a central role in the modulation of Wnt/β-catenin signaling in normal and neoplastic stem cells
