CD24+ cells differentiate and give rise to CD24 cells in vivo. a Experimental strategy scheme. CD24 or CD24+ cells were injected into the mammary fat pads; after 3 weeks, tumors were harvested and CD24 expression was evaluated. b CD24 expression in cancer cells from mammary tumors was determined by fluorescence-activated cell sorting analysis (upper panel), and CD24 and CD24+ from CD24+ inoculated tumors were sorted into a pure population (lower panel). c Different phenotypes for each group shown on phase-contrast bright field images of cells grown in adherent culture
