Immortal Strand | DNA

Regen Center Glossary

The immortal DNA strand is a theory that suggests the asymmetric division of the DNA of adult stem cells through selective retention as opposed to random segregation during mitosis. The process also has the potential to retain a different outline of parental DNA strands per division.

The Immortal Strand theory was first proposed by researcher John Cairns in 1975. To learn more about DNA and genetic testing contact us.
