Potential of Reprogramming Stem Cells from Adult Tissue

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Blog, Induced pluripotent stem cells‎, Research

If stem cells are used to treat diseases such as Heart Failure and crohns, we must understand how the genes are turned on and off in our cells. By studying stem cells and gametes, we can understand how the genes are regulated by so-called epigenetic mechanisms when they give rise to new cell types. During the development from stem cell …


Stem Cell Potency of Totipotent Stem Cells

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Glossary

Totipotent stem cells are very unique among all other variants of stem cells, because totipotent stem cells possess the highest possible ability to construct an entire organism from a single cell. Totipotent stem cells are cells that have the capability to develop into any type of cell in an organism, including the cells of the extraembryonic membranes (such as the …
