Presentation Transcript


  2. Stem Cells • Characteristics • They continue to grow and proliferate, • Given the correct signals (from a hormone or a ‘growth factor’) they can differentiate into a particular specialized cell type • Stem cell video (7 min)

  3. Some stem cells have more abilities than others • A totipotent stem cell can form not only adult cell types, but also the specialized tissues needed for development • EX: Zygote

  4. A pluripotentstem cell can form most or all of the 210 differentiated cell types in the adult body EX: Inner Cell mass of blastocyst

  5. A multipotentstem cell can form only a few differentiated cell types EX: Umbilical Cord blood Bone marrow

  6. Where do we get stem cells? • Sources of stem cells • Early embryos from fertility clinics • Somatic cell nuclear transfer • Tissue-based (adult) stem cells- Skin, Sperm, Fat, Bone • Ethical issues associated with use of embryos • Stem cell video

  7. Embryonic Stem Cells • Hope- Regenerative medicine • A lot of cells can be grown and then given hormonal signals to specialize into a specific tissue • This could be used to create new cells or tissue on demand and treat illnesses such as diabetes, Alzheimer’s and spinal cord injuries

  8. Embryonic Stem Cells • Problems • Inefficient to get them to start growing and keep growing in the laboratory • Hard to form the desired specific cell type in the culture dish. • Could form tumors in patients • Only scant evidence that embryonic stem cells can actually work in the body

  12. Cloning • Cloning means to make an identical copy of something, including copying DNA • Cloning a new organism from a pre-existing one is known as asexual reproduction because it does not involve sex
