A method to characterize and culture stem cell from neonate mouse epidermis after transplacental BrdU administration is described. We have characterized stem cell by its properties viz. to retain BrdU-label, adhere rapidly onto collagen-fibronectin substratum, and express a specific biomarker beta-1-integrin. BrdU labeled cells (detected using monoclonal antibody) constituted a sum of 18% of total number of cells. Capability of freshly isolated keratinocytes (LRC) to bind to primary BrdU-antibody or to pick up PI stain was distinguishable. Viable-LRCs did not retain PI. Such cells, termed EpSC, were PI (negative) & BrdU (positive). EpSC constituted 6% of the total cell yield. Culture in low Ca2+ medium and susceptibility to differentiation in presence of high Ca2+ levels further characterized the stem cells. This protocol is useful to study transplacental carcinogenesis.
