Can't happen, but did happen in a limited fashion in one patient
What part of the brain did limited neurogenesis occur?
Stem cell definition?
- Divides asymmetrically
- Can regenerate itself
- generates all cell types in that tissue
Totipotent, Pluripotent, and Multipotent stem cells?
Toti: generates all cell types and placenta (capable of forming an entire organism)
Pluri: generates all cells of organism EXCEPT for placenta
Multi: generates multiple cell types but not all
Which is toti, multi, pluri? Zygote, embryonic stell cell.
- Zygote = Totipotent
- ESC = Pluripotent
2 Cellular therapy for stroke?
- 1. Neural stem cells (NT2N and c-mycER)
- 2. bone-marrow derived stem cells (MPC Athersys)
Fibroblast plus 4 other genes and NANOG cause it to be transformed into induced-pluripotent stem cell
