Multipotent Stem Cells

 During the development of cells they become more specialized in their function.

 The cells are committed to a single function. 

 This process of cellular specialization is called 'Differentiation' and is controlled by the nucleus of the cell. 

 Multipotent stem cells are a small number of partially differentiated stem cells present in adult tissues and are capable of forming a limited number of specialized cell types.

I know that Miami college in Florida has been working on this in animals, so they can do this in humans. They have been doing wonders. Give them a call. It might just change your life. Be persistent about it with them. You could also call up Pen State. Their are some wonderful BME people there. M for Medical that is. They might be able to help. Call Florida first for sure. God bless your journey.

A fertilised egg has totipotency, or total potential for about four days. Days after fertilisation,the totipotent stem cell divides and then matures to cause more specialised stem cells called pluripotent stem cells.Basically, the pluripotent stem cell can do everything the totipotent one can except for creating an entire organism.


so, how can we take totipotent cells frm a human? is tht practically possible? if we could, it wud be great, isn't it?

ESC research only "does not involve cloning" if you redefine 'cloning.' Most people understand that it is making a 'copy' of someone's DNA. To use ESC's therapeutically, they must be 'recognized' by the cells of the end user - the simplest way is to 'clone' his/her DNA. And insert it into an available egg (and where are all these human eggs going to come from? 3rd-world women?)
