Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells | iPS | iPSCs | hiPSCs

Regen Center Glossary 1 Comment

Induced pluripotent stem cells or iPS cells are also known as IPSCs are a recent discovery and like STAP cells, have the potential to revolutionise regenerative medicine in the world. The IPS cells are lab created cells with the power to differentiate as great as the embryonic stem cell lines. In 2006, scientists identified four key genes in embryonic stemcells …
