Tumor growth in a xenograft mice injected with the different SKOV3 cells. A shows the oncogenicity in mice s.c. challenged with 5 × 105 CD44−CD117− cells or SKOV-3 cells or 5 × 104 CD44+CD117+cells, respectively. B indicates the tumor volume of the mice after being injected with the different SKOV-3 cells. C exhibits the images of tumor-bearing nude mice at 6 weeks after being injected with 5 × 104 CD44+CD117+cells.
