Scientists have discovered a new stem cell! How is this possible you ask, all stem cells are pluripotent and able to differentiate into other cells and are easily manipulated right? Well….yes but the new stem cells researchers have identified fit the bill even better.
Known as novel region-selective pluripotent stem cells (rsPSCs), the new stem cells have broader differentiation, can be cultivated in other species, have higher cloning abilities, are more easily manipulated, and are more stable. This makes them ideal for studying early human development and generating tissues and even complete organs. Click below to read more on this fascinating find.
