CD133 expression in human CNS neoplasms is independent of the grade of malignancy but strongly correlates with SRBCT morphology. Together with recent findings showing that CD133 is quickly upregulated upon hypoxia and that CD133(-) cells can also exhibit stem cell properties, our data strongly question the suitability of CD133 as a brain tumour stem cell marker in vivo.
