Triel C, Vestergaard ME, Bolund L, Jensen TG, Jensen UB. 2004. Side population cells in human and mouse epidermis lack stem cell characteristics. Exp Cell Res 295:79-90. Umemoto T, Yamato M, Nishida K, Kohno C, Yang J, Tano Y, Okano T. 2005. Rat limbal epithelial side population cells exhibit a distinct expression of stem cell markers that are lacking in side population cells from the central cornea. FEBS Lett 579:6569-6574. Umemoto T, Yamato M, Nishida K, Yang J, Tano Y, Okano T. 2006. Limbal epithelial side-population cells have stem cell-like properties, including quiescent state.

However, it still retains some of its blue fluorescence emission when not bound to chromatin, but loses almost all of its red fluorescence in the loosely bound or unbound state. The decrease we observe in Hoechst 33342 fluorescence in the SP (unbound) population is due largely to the shift in red fluorescence; the SP population is therefore not a straight line down to the minimal axis, but is curved and arched, maintaining some blue fluorescence but losing almost all red emission. This bichromatic shift allows the SP population to be distinguished from other sub-Gi populations when displayed in a bivariate dot plot, including dead cells, debris, and some mature cell populations that also display dye efflux.

2. Practical Aspects of Hoechst SP Analysis The cell-permeable DNA binding dye Hoechst 33342 (not to be confused with Hoechst 33258, which is spectrally similar but is not cell permeable) has an excitation maxima in the ultraviolet (Xex = 351 nm). An ultraviolet laser source is therefore required for good Hoechst SP resolution. Unfortunately, ultraviolet lasers have traditionally been uncommon fixtures on flow cytometers [Shapiro and Telford, 2009]. Until recently, a large-frame water-cooled gas laser, such as a Coherent or Spectra-Physics laser, was usually needed to produce ultraviolet laser excitation for flow cytometry.
