|New mechanisms that regulate pluripotency in embryonic stem cells are discovered|
The pluripotency is the capacity that some cells posses to ability to generate cells from the three germ layers (ectoderm, mesoderm and endoderm) as well as the germ cells. The embryonic stem cells (ESC) are the most known pluripotent cells, they present a high capacity of cell differentiation and self-renewal. These properties make ESC as potential tools for regenerative medicine, but ...
Pluripotency and the ability to self-renew are distinctive properties of embryonic stem cells (ESCs), that confer them a great potential in regenerative medicine. The understanding of the regulatory networks acting on ESCs, led to the identification of a core set of transcription factors (TFs) able to control pluripotency, leading to the discovery that somatic cells could be reprogramed...
