(10 pts) Turn-in of Micro Symposium Summary 2. (15 pts) Describe the difference(s) between pluripotency, multipotent, totipotent, & unipotent stem cells AND when they occur in the human development. Some stem cells have more capabilities (potency) Unipotent- can form only one type of cell Pluripotent- form most or all of the 210 differentiated cell types in adults Totipotent- form all adult body cell types and specialized tissues for embryo development (i.e., placenta) Totipotent Embryonic stem cells (ES) Pluripotent Embryonic germ cells (EG), Fetal Tissue stem cells, Cord/placental stem cells, and some “adult” stem cells, Embryonal carcinoma cells (EC) Multipotent Fetal Tissue stem cells, Cord/placental stem cells, and some “adult” stem cells

Alzheimers, Parkinsons, Huntingtons, heart disease, (Table 19.6 lists several) 4. (10 pts) Explain the relationship between penetrance of a gene mutation and the clinical presentation of symptoms for a disease phenotype. A genetic mutation must have an effect such that it disrupts the normal cellular machinery or gene function to result in a diseased phenotype. Thus, the gene must penetrate the normal functioning levels to observe a clinical effect. 5. (10 pts) Match the following terms: e ___ homeotic gene a. final morphological features that a cell will adopt c ___ apoptosis b. gene that is expressed after fertilization a ___ cell fate c. programmed cell death b ___ zygotic gene d. homologous genes in different species d ___ orthologs e. gene that functions in governing the fate of a particular body region...
