This little stem cell became heart cells, this little stem cell made bone, this little stem cell had mutant genes, this little stem cell had none. But scientists supported by the National Institutes of Health are learning more and more about the basic biology of stem cells

Translate Series Title.

Special focus of SCR is on mechanisms of pluripotency and description of newly generated pluripotent stem cell lines. The journal publishes.

There are many types of stem cells, but the one with the most potential is the embryonic stem (ES) cell. Such cells are derived from human embryos, and are undifferentiated, unlike other specialized cells in the human body. ES are pluripotent, as they can transform into almost any human cell type. This makes them potentially capable to help in effectively combatting a variety of degenerative diseases and conditions such as spinal cord injury, stroke or heart attacks.

What is a stem cell? A stem cell is a "mother cell" with the ability to develop into different kinds of tissue. Cardiac muscle destroyed by a heart attack could be repaired. The same goes for brain tissue damaged by a stroke, and severed.

Stem cells can be employed to replace damaged and diseased cells, curing many diseases. As scientists pursue research into stem cells, they have unlocked many secrets about how cells form and how they affect the body. This title examines the science behind stem cell research in the following chapters: What Are Stem Cells? The Mysteries of Embryonic Stem Cells, Rebuilding Damaged Bodies with Adult Stem Cells, Therapeutic Cloning: Altering the DNA of Stem Cells, New Advancements, New Challenges.
