Totipotent Stem Cells

Font : A-A+

Totipotent Stem Cells:

  • In development of human, the egg cell (from a women) and the sperm cell (from a man) fuse together to form a single cell called the zygote.

  • The zygote divides multiple times to form 216 different cell types and these are the precursor cells for formation of the entire two to three trillion cells that eventually forms the entire human body.
  • The zygote which is formed and the first three cell divisions are capable of forming the entire human body.
  • These formed cells are called as totipotent stem cells.
  • Identical twins are formed when the dividing cell mass splits apart at this stage, which leads to genetically identical embryos.

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?
