Pluripotent Stem Cells

Font : A-A+

Pluripotent Stem Cells

  •  During cell division, the number of stem cells increases, but the number of different cell types produced are limited. After 5 days of division hollow ball of blastocyst cells are formed. 
  •  The outer blastocyst cell layer forms the placenta that provides nourishment to the fetus.

  •  Pluripotent embryonic stem cells ( ES cells) are formed from the inner group of stem cells and help in formation of the embryo's tissues.
  • Pluripotent cells are more versatile than an adult stem cell and can produce many different cell types.
  •  These cells are easier for controlling growth and differentiation than adult stem cells.
  •  Pluripotent stem cells are more abundant than adult stem cells and therefore significantly easier to isolate.
  •  Research studies done on animal ES cell (Pluripotent embryonic stem cells) experiments can be used to understand Human stem cells.

Human pluripotent stem cells can be produced from:

  • Isolation of ES cells from blastocyst during in vitro fertilization.
  • ES cells can be extracted from eggs or sperms of aborted or miscarried fetus.
  • Production of tailor made ES cells from patients own differentiated cells by using cloning techniques.

we can get totipotent stem cells from human embryos that are created invitro in ART labs.

Hello,
I am a c2/c3 quad on a ventilator. I have been paralyzed for 15 years as a result from fooling with a friend. I writing to find about any type of human spinal cord rejuvenation trials. If so or any type along that line, then please let me know.
Thanks

contact reelabs at mumbai, reference roheet gupta. they have done such cases sussessfully

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?
