Insert student sheet 14.1 in the box below. Analysis Questions 1. What is the difference between a stem cell and a differentiated cell, such as a red blood cell? Stem cells can become a variety of types of cells, while differentiated cells like red blood cells are fully specialized cell types. 2. Use the information on Student Sheet 14.1 “Stem Cell Differentiation,” to describe the pathway for each of the following as it differentiates: a. A smooth muscle cell You would go from the embryonic stem cell to the mesoderm after that you would go to the muscle stem cell then you would be at the smooth muscle cell. b. A pancreatic beta ) cell (? You would go from the embryonic stem cell to the endoderm after that you would go to pancreas precursor cell then you would be at the pancreatic beta ) cell. (? 3. The two cells in question 2 have the same genetic information. What part of the cell cycle ensures that all cells get the same genetic information?
The telophase will ensure that all the cells get all the same genetic information.
