Abstract Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) primarily reside in bone marrow, are defined by their ability to maintain blood homeostasis, and replenish themselves through self-renewal. Although HSC purification schemes vary from laboratory to laboratory, the resulting cell populations are similar, if not the same. This chapter will discuss different enrichment methods for HSCs and provide a detailed protocol for staining HSC with Hoechst 33342 for the side population (SP).
