Unformatted text preview: Outline of the Lecture Stem Cells and Transplantation Adult Stem Cells Embryonic Stem Cells Anti Immunogenicity Tissue Engineering Uses Constructs Based on Adult and Embryonic Stem Cells The Fight Against Transplantation Immunogenicity Uses Autologous Constructs or Immunobarriers We identify two types of cell division: cleavage (a), which in cultures may lead to exponential growth (c), and asymmetric (b), as with stem cells (d). Genzyme Biosurgery Current applications of adult stem cells involve ex vivo expansion and orthotopic delivery, either directly or after re-creation of a tissue ex vivo. To achieve success, considerable knowledge of the adult stem cell population dynamics is required to predict and control the tissue activity. Adult-epithelial-cell lineages have an actual stem cell and potential stem cells, which are dividing transit cells that can replace a damaged ancestor. Adult stem cells have obvious topographical positions in sections through small-intestine crypts, being in the 4 th or 5 th place from the base. The adult epidermal proliferative unit has a col- umnar organization with stems cells at the basal layer and differentiated cells migrating upwards. The epidermis has three stem-cell compartments. The epidermis has three stem-cell compartments....
