cell marker

cell mark·'er

an identifying characteristic of a cell; for example, formation of rosettes with sheep erythrocytes as a marker of T lymphocytes, or the presence of surface immunoglobulin as a marker of B lymphocytes.

The inclusion of a cancer stem cell marker allows assessment of risk sufficiently early that reversal of carcinogenesis via behavioral change could be possible even before a lesion is clinically identified.
After conducting a series of studies, the researchers reported that cells localized at the base of the hair follicle (dermalpapilla) expressed the stem cell marker Sox2 and exhibited the property to grow in colonies in the form of spheres, both characteristics of dermal stem cells.
