  • Stem Cell

    Stem cells -are biological cells found in all multi cellularorganisms‚ that can divide (throughmitosis) and differentiate into diverse specialized cell types and can self-renew to produce more stem cells. In mammals‚ there are two broad types of stem cells: embryonic stem cells‚ which are isolated from the inner cell mass of blastocysts‚ and adult stem cells‚ which are found in various tissues. In adult organisms‚ stem cells and progenitor cells act as a repair system for the body‚ replenishing

    Stem cells Nowadays‚ stem cells are the hottest topic in the medical field. More and more researches are performed to investigate these mystic cells. In order to go deeper into this topic and fully understand it‚ let’s first take a look at the stem cells themselves‚ their origins and characteristics which make them so unique and crucial for the medical field. Stem cells are very complex and complicated‚ and‚ that is why‚ it takes a lot amount of time to get to the bottom of their structure to be

    STEM CELLS Where are stem cells sourced from? Stem cells are sourced from three main sources‚ Embryos‚ bone marrow and umbilical cord blood. Each different sources’ Stem Cells are either totipotent‚ pluripotent or multipotent. Refer to Figure 1 Figure 1 Stem Cells can be categorised into their capability of being cultured into a different cell. Embryonic Stem Cells: Are pluripotent cells meaning they can be cultured into most cell types. The Embryonic Cells are sourced from in the internal cell

    STEM CELL RESEARCH AND THERAPYAND ITS IMPACTS ON SOCIETY Abstract There are several types of stem cells being used in stem cell research and therapy today. They are embryonic‚ adult and induced pluripotent stem cells. Each will be discussed further. This topic has stirred much moral‚ ethical and political debate as whether cells from fetuses should be used in this research. This impacts governmental policies on laws and funding. Another issue that must be analyzed is the

    it? Stem cell research has been in the media since the day it was discovered. With the potential to cure many patients who are otherwise bound to die of diseases that are currently incurable‚ of course stem cells would be a big deal. But there are people who believe that stem cell research is a very inhuman and immoral act only because embryonic stem cells come from unborn embryos. Even within developed nations‚ research of stem cells is illegal because of this. These nations ignore a stem cell’s

    Biology 103 Stem cells are known as the foundation of our bodies‚ and without them we would be unable to repair various organs or tissues whenever they may become damaged. Stem cells are very extraordinary cells because after division and a new cell is created‚ they are able to either remain a stem cell or turn into an even more specialized cell such as a muscle cell‚ red blood cell‚ or brain cell. Until recently‚ there were only two major types of stem cells‚ known as embryonic stem cells and adult

    Stem cells are unique because they have the ability to generate new cells of any kind during early life and growth. There are about 200 different types of cells in the body; such as muscle‚ skin and brain cells. Most of these cells have to be repaired or replaced once in a while. For example our taste buds are replaced every 10 days‚ skin cells every couple of weeks and liver cells every 300-500 days. Stem cells serve as an internal repair system dividing essentially without limit to replenish
