How they are generated? Stem cells are undifferentiated cells capable of unlimited dividing and differentiating into other cell types: nervous, bone, of the heart, of the skin, liver and pancreas. Possono essere prelevate dall'embrione, dal feto o dall'adulto e a seconda della potenzialità delle cellule staminali, are classified in: totipotenti, if they give rise to a whole organism; pluripotent, if they generate many types of fabrics but [...]
