What are cell markers? Where can I find a
website about cell markers?
Are there different types of cell markers and different
jobs that they do?
Every cell has a set of glycoproteins that are embedded in its cell membrane
that make it a somewhat unique organism of the world ...the closer cells are
in there relatives...same mom for instance thae closer the cell
glycoproteins will be...This is a very simplified example. To look it up I
would start with books that describe the cell membrane...O good college
level introductory text like "Cambell" or "Arms and Camp" have pretty decent
descriptions that a smart middle school student could handle maybe with some
minor help, if needed. The next place up would be to look into
"histocompatability" (or MHC) antigens...very adcanced but with help you
could get it.
