Pluripotent

Some articles on pluripotent:

Stem Cell Line - Alternative Sources
... Also, adult stem cells are not totipotent or pluripotent like embryonic stem cells, but rather more specialized cells that are multipotent ... Another source of stem cells is the iPS (induced pluripotent stem) cell ... One added advantage of this type of stem cell is that the pluripotent cell has the same DNA as the donor and can be used therapeutically towards that end without painful ...
Embryomics - Notes
... "Induction of pluripotent stem cells from adult human fibroblasts by defined factors" Cell 2007 131861–872 ... "Induction of pluripotent stem cells from mouse embryonic and adult fibroblast cultures by defined factors" Cell 126, 663–676 (2006) ... "Induced pluripotent stem cell lines derived from human somatic cells" Science 318, 1917–1920 (2007) ...
Pluripotent Reprogramming Vs Transdifferentiation
... a wide variety of cells back into induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) ... It may become possible in the future to use transdifferentiation in vivo where as pluripotent reprogramming may cause teratomas in vivo ... Transdifferentiated cells will require less epigenetic marks to be reset where as pluripotent reprogramming requires nearly all to be removed, which may become an issue during redifferentiation ...
Adult Stem Cell Therapies - Sources
... Pluripotent stem cells, i.e ... Using genetic reprogramming, pluripotent stem cells equivalent to embryonic stem cells have been derived from human adult skin tissue ... In mice, pluripotent stem cells can be directly generated from adult fibroblast cultures ...
