Fig. 6

The intensity of NADH autofluorescence as a biomarker can be used to sort breast cancer stem cells and colon cancer stem cells. a Limiting dilution showed that compared to NADHlow/ALDH cells, NADHhigh/ALDH+, NADHhigh/ALDH, and NADHlow/ALDH+ have higher sphere formation in MDA-MB-231 and HT-29. b, c The average diameter of the tumorspheres in NADHhigh/ALDHhigh, NADHhigh/ALDHlow, and NADHlow/ALDHhigh subpopulations was larger than that in NADHlow/CD133 subpopulations in MDA-MB-231 and HT-29 cells. All data are presented as the means ± SD. **p < 0.01, *p < 0.05 (n = 3 independent experiments)
