Jul 24, 2012 · Adult stem cells and embryonic stem cells are the two main types of stem cells. The key difference between adult and embryonic stem cells is that adult cells are multipotent as they have a limited ability to differentiate while embryonic stem cells are pluripotent as they have the ability to differentiate into any cell type.Author: Samanthi. Adult stem cells are found in small numbers in most adult tissues, such as bone marrow or fat. Compared with embryonic stem cells, adult stem cells are more limited in their ability to become different cells in the body. Until recently, researchers thought adult stem cells could create only similar types of cells.
May 07, 2009 · Adult stem cells (ASC’s) are found in everyone’s body and they are capable of repairing a host of tissues. In fact, the research on adult cell lines has surpassed embryonic. Above is the result of a search I did yesterday in the National Library of Medicine, looking at all embryonic stem cell published papers vs. the total on all adult stem cell lines. The adult stem cells are derived from adult tissue, and have the ability to regenerate into all the cell types of the organ from which they originate. Embryonic Stem Cells, on the other hand, are stem cells that are derived from the inner cell mass of a blastocyst.
Jan 04, 2018 · Embryonic stem cells are found in developing embryos; adult stem cells are found after the embryonic development stage, in juveniles and adults. As an embryo develops, nearby tissue sends a carefully orchestrated set of signals that tell the stem cells how to develop.Author: Lori Allen. Mar 31, 2017 · Adult stem cells are localized in several parts of the differentiated cells in the adult body while the inner cell mass of the blastocyst gives rise to embryonic stem cells. A variety of adult stem cells can be found, but embryonic stem cells are derived from the three germ layers.
Adult stem cells can be harvested from a person’s blood, fat, or bone marrow with little effect on the individual. This eliminates the controversy about destroying life. Cells can be obtained directly from the tissue they belong to and it does not destroy a human embryo during the process. Dr. Oz did in fact say stem cells were the solution, but instead of backing ESCR, he advocated adult stem cells as the future of medical breakthroughs. Here are some interesting outcomes on the topic from the Life Issues Institute: Interestingly, there are some fascinating findings related to using adult vs. embryonic stem cells.
