Unformatted text preview: o What is meant by and adult stem cell? (e.g., what is the source of the stem cells?) What is HSC? o What is ES? Presumably ES cells are pluripotent. How is this demonstrated for mouse ES cells and why cant this be formally proven for human? How do we determine a human stem cell line is multipotent?- differentiate into different types of cells in culture is one way What are the sources of ES cells? Human ES cell source ? donated embryos from in vitro fertilization procedures Human EG (embryonic germ stem cell) cell source ? pre-term fetus o How could stem cells be useful for a therapeutic purpose? • • What is SCNT? what is reprogramming? why is this potentially useful?...
