stem cell potency

  1. most potent since they must become every type of cell in the body.
    Embryonic stem cell
  2. TOTIPOTENT   STEM CELLS aka
    OMNIPOTENT STEM CELLS
  3. Has the ability to differentiate into all possible cell types
    TOTIPOTENT STEM CEL
  4. Has the capacity to form an entire organism
    TOTIPOTENT STEM CEL
  5. Example are the zygote formed at egg fertilization and the first few cells that result from the division of the zygote
    TOTIPOTENT STEM CEL
  6. Has the capability of developing into any type of cell or tissue except those that form a placenta or embryo
    PLURIPOTENT STEM CELLS
  7. Examples include embryonic stem cells and cells that are derived from mesoderm, endoderm and ectoderm germ layers that are formed in the beginning stages of embryonic stem cell differentiation
    PLURIPOTENT STEM CELLS
  8. Found in blastocyst
    PLURIPOTENT STEM CELLS
  9. a middle-range type of stem cell, in that they can self-renew and differentiate into a specific range of cell types.
    Multipotent stem cells
  10. An excellent example of MULTIPOTENT STEM  cell type is the
    mesenchymal stem cell (MSC)
  11. Mesenchymal stem cells can differentiate into
    • osteoblasts (a type of bone cell)
    • myocytes (muscle cells)
    • adipocytes (fat cells)
    • chondrocytes (cartilage cells)
  12. ........ are similar to the multipotent stem cells but they become further restricted in their capacity to differentiate.While these cells can self-renew and differentiate, they can only do so to a limited, they can only do so into closely related cell types.
    Oligopotent stem cells
  13. OLIGOPOTENT STEM CELLS
    An excellent example of this cell type is the
    hematopoietic stem cell (HSC)
  14. ....... are the least potent and most limited type of stem cell.
    Unipotent stem cells
  15. UNIPOTENT STEM CELLS
    An example of this stem cell type would be
    muscle stem cells
