Stem cells are characterized by the ability to self-renew, or divide without senescing, and to differentiate into specialized somatic cells. Stem cells have the ability to differentiate into specific cell types. The two defining characteristics of a stem cell are perpetual self-renewal and the ability to differentiate into a specialized adult cell type. There are two major classes of stem cells: pluripotent that can become any cell in the adult body, and multipotent that are restricted to becoming a more limited population of cells. Multiple types of stem cells have been identified, including embryonic and adult stem cells. Embryonic stem cells are pluripotent and can differentiate into all cell types of the mature organism. In contrast, adult (somatic) stem cells, including hematopoietic, muscle, cardiac, neural, and mesenchymal stem cells, are thought to have limited potency, and their differentiated derivatives are generally thought to populate only the tissue of residence. More recent advances in stem cell biology have identified the transcription factors that are sufficient to reprogram somatic cells back to an undifferentiated state. These induced pluripotent stem cells, and other stem cell types, have potential uses for understanding multipotency and self-renewal, developing models of human diseases for drug and toxicology studies, and applying cell-replacement strategies for regenerative medicine.
