Scientific Background:Stage-specific embryonic antigen-4 (SSEA-4) is a ganglioside which consists of a glycosphingolipid (GSL) containing a terminal sialic acid residue (N-acetylneuraminic acid). SSEA-4 expression changes both qualitatively and quantitatively during development, differentiation and in tumorigenesis. During human development, SSEA-4 is first observed on pluripotent cells of the inner cell mass and is subsequently lost upon differentiation.
SSEA-4 has been found to be over-expressed in a number of cancers and has been correlated with disease progression.
Studies have identified SSEA-4 as a novel marker to detect heterogeneous, invasive subpopulations of tumor cells. Importantly, it was also demonstrated that increased cell-surface SSEA-4 expression is associated with the loss of cell–cell interactions and the gain of a migratory phenotype, suggesting an important role of SSEA-4 in cancer invasion by influencing cellular adhesion to the extracellular matrix.
