Stem Cell Information - Basics
Title: Stem Cell Information - Basics
Creator: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services / National Institutes of Health <Bethesda, Md.>
Abstract: Stem cells have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types in the body. Serving as a sort of repair system for the body, they can theoretically divide without limit to replenish other cells as long as the person or animal is still alive. When a stem cell divides, each new cell has the potential to either remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a more specialized function, such as a muscle cell, a red blood cell, or a brain cell. This document covers basic information about stem cells. For a more detailed discussion, see our Stem Cell Reports. Or you can check the Frequently Asked Questions page for quick answers to specific queries. [Information of the supplier]
