STEM CELLS CAN HELP US REPAIR TISSUES:
Tissue: an organized group of different cell types that work together to carry out a particular function.
Stem Cells: immature cells that can divide and differentiate into specialized cell types
Adult Stem Cells (Somatic Stem Cells): stems cells located in tissues that help maintain and regenerate those tissues
Multipotent: a cell with the ability to differentiate into a limited number of cell types in the body.
Embryonic Stem Cells: Stem cells that make up an early embryo which can differentiate into nearly every cell type in the body
Pluripotent: a cell with the ability to differentiate into nearly any cell in the body
Ethics of stem cell research
The research is done on human fetal cells.
Blastocyst: a stage of embryonic development in which the embryo is a hollow ball of cells (or thought to be). Researchers can derive embryonic stem cell lines during the blastocyst stage.
