Hello Mark,

We ran human RPE's many years ago at Geron.   I can't remember the details 
except that these cells were extremely autofluorescent - so that property 
of high autofluorescence might adequate to differentiate them from 
less-autofluorescent cells.

Retinal Pigment Epithelial

Dear flow'ers,

Happy new year to one and all!

Has anyone ran bovine Retinal Pigment Epithelial cells on Facs (other than 
part of an endocytosis assay). If so, what markers did you use to 
identify them as bovine RPE's? 

Does the melanine within the cells have any useful properties?

Any help will be greatfully recieved.

Many thanks
