    Abstract

    Stem cells are the body’s “master” cells because they give rise to all other tissues, organs, and systems in the body. Each tissue within the body contains unique type of stem cells that renew and replace that particular tissue (e.g. nerve, brain, cartilage, blood) when needed, due to damage or wear and tear. Stem cells have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types in the body. Basically, these cells serve as a sort of repair system for the body; they can theoretically divide without limit to replenish other cells as long as the person or any other living being is still alive. When a stem cell divides, each new cell has the potential to either remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a more specialized function, such as a muscle cell, a red blood cell, or a brain cell. The classical definition of a stem cell requires that it possess the following two properties : Self-renewal - the ability to go through numerous cycles of cell division while maintaining the undifferentiated states PLuripotency - the capacity to differentiate into specialized cell types. In the strictest sense, this requires stem cells to be either totipotent or pluripotent - to be able to give rise to any mature cell type, although multipotent or unipotent progenitor cells are sometimes referred to as stem cells
