Researchers from the University of California, Davis, recently published a brand-new study on stem cells in the journal “Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences”. The scientists at UC Davis were able to develop a new system that allowed them to derive stem cell efficiently. On every attempt.
Stem cells are cells in the body that have the unlimited potential to develop into any different cell type in the early life and growth of the organism. In many tissues, they serve as a repair system. Stem cells can be distinguished from other cell types by two things: first, they are unspecialized and can renew themselves through cell division, and second, under certain conditions they can be induced to become a tissue or an organ.
The scientists say that producing a stem cell from livestock is very important for genetic testing, studying human illnesses, and genome engineering.
