Stem Cells

Stem cells are a biological cell that can turn into a specialized cell, and then divide to create more.

What is the tissue in plants that contain stem cells?

In a plant, the meristematic tissue contains stem cells

How are stem cells made in the body and lab?

well first of all you go to the lab and talk to a scientist to see what he says then go home and get your DNA to find out how stem cells are made in your body. its simple why did you ask me. ...

What are the different types of cells in the kidney?

There are many different cell types in the kidney. Like in other organs, cells of the kidney can be divided into cells that make up the functional part of the kidney (called the parenchyma) and cells that make up the connective tissue and supporting structure of the kidney (the stroma). In studying an organ's cells, most focus on the parenchymal cells, because it is those cells that are typically unique to a given organ. This is true for the kidney. Parenchymal cells of...

What are the pros and cons of stem cell research?

Pros and Cons of Stem Cell Research What are Stem Cells? There has been much controversy in the press recently about the pros and cons of stem cell research. What is the controversy all about? "Stem" cells can be contrasted with "differentiated" cells. They offer much hope for medical advancement because of their ability to grow into almost any kind of cell. For instance, neural cells in the brain and spinal cord that have been damaged can be replaced by stem cells. In...

How are muscle cells formed by stem cells?

In postnatal muscle, skeletal muscle precursors (myoblasts) can be derived from satellite cells (reserve cells located on the surface of mature myofibers) or from cells lying beyond the myofiber, e.g., interstitial connective tissue or bone marrow. Both of these classes of cells may have stem cell properties. In addition, the heretical idea that postmitotic myonuclei lying within mature myofibers might be able to re-form myoblasts or stem cells is examined and related to recent observations for similar post-mitotic cardiomyocytes. In adult hearts (which previously were not...

How do somatic cells and reproductive cells differ from each other?

== == Somatic cells are body cells that contain 46 chromosomes and reproduce very rapidly. Reproductive cells are sex cells(sperm and egg)(dont rproduce as fast as somatic cells)and they contain 23 chromosomes. ...

What is the definition of stem cell research?

The research of undeveloped cells in aborted fetuses. These cells can be inserted into a diseased or abnormal part of a person's body and they can develop into whatever kind of cell they're surrounded by. This can repair and heal the affected area. ...

What does the term potency refer to when talking about stem cells?

Their ability to differentiate into other cell types.

What are the cons of stem cell research?

Human stem cell research requires the destruction of human embryos and/or therapeutic coning, which brings up ethical and religious issues. "Many religions, including Buddhism and Christianity do not believe in this harm , or that it destroys the afterlife."- Whoever said this is stupid, Christians do believe this is wrong because its close to abortion. Its just the same as destroying a human person. there is good and bad to this research. Recent advances in stem cell harvesting have made the religious argument like...
Asked in Stem Cells

What is the mass of stem cells produced in the first few days after fertilization called?

A morula (mulberry) is an early stage in the development of the embryo at which it consists of a solid spherical ball of apparently identical cells. The morula stage is when one of the earliest prenatal diagnostic test can be carried out, by removing a single cell (blastomere) and carrying out genetic diagnosis on its DNA. Each one could develop into a complete animal (or human) since they are genetic the same. ...

How many stems of leptospermum come in a bunch?

It depends on the packager. Most floral products can be bought with as few as one stem, or as many as 50, depending on the grower. As with most things, it is just a question of what the market will pay. ...
Asked in Stem Cells

How are embryonic human stem cells like plant cells?

The embryonic human stem cells are like a plant cell, because interphase carries out the variouse function as the growth and preparation of the human stem grows. The plant cells also grow and increases in the size and makes proteins for other cells. Mitosis then takes over, the cell is cut into two and reformed. also like the embryonic humanstem cells. and that is how they are alike .. to sum things up the over all preformance is they both grow...

Asked in Biology, Genetics, Barack Obama, Stem Cells

What is a stem cell?

A cell must meet two basic key criteria in order to be considered a stem cell: 1. Able to differentiate into multiple cell types upon induction. 2. Able to remain in an undifferentiated state over numerous cell divisions when not induced to differentiate. There are numerous "stem cells", some with more potential than others. An embryonic stem cell is pluripotent by definition because it is able to become any cell in the body (though this is difficult in practice). Other stem cells are more...

Why do people think embryonic stem cell research is bad?

Answer: Embryonic stem cells come from embryos. An embryo is the earliest stage of development of life. Medical researchers believe that embryonic stem cell research has the potential to significantly help people who have disabilities, failing body organs or other problems. Many believe that embryonic stem cell research is bad. They see an embryo as a baby, a life, a person, and therefore it's wrong to use the cells for research because they believe it is killing an unborn child. Now this is just...
