Stem cell is the origin of whole cells of our body, also known as mesenchyme. This cell undergoes active proliferation, the one will differentiate into another type of cells, whereas the other one will remain as a stem cell (reserve cell). During the process, the growing and developing stem cell is losing its regeneration capacity but it becomes a professional cell.

Well, if you are interested on stem cell, there is a nice article in National Geographic Magazine, July Edition. Check it out ;)
