... is easy to have dedicated cells for division and differentiation. Therefore, normal cells can continue doing their tissue function whereas adult stem cells perform their function i.e. dividing and replacing damaged cells. Also, the question 'why?' seems to be unanswerable. This is the result ...

Re: Totipotent Stem Cell From Molecular Components

I am not saying # of protein x = # of protein y(In fact this is almost never the case). Rather I am saying that for a particular protein in my stem cell at least, the amount of that particular protein is the average of the gene expression in # of strands of mRNA * 100. I am getting the protein ...

Trying to prove height increase...need help

... than is present in the study(fairly intense clamping). Possible reasons could be related to hydrostatic pressure, changes in gene expression in stem cells resulting in differentiation, osteoclast degradation enabling interstitial growth, or gene signaling from the articular cartilage/synovial ...

Stem Cells and Cell division?

Hello, I am well aware of the concepts of Stem Cells (Cell specialization) and Cell Division (Mitosis), however I am unsure of where their applications lie. I am well aware of the function of embryonic stem cells (As I know that Cell Specialization ...
