What is an adult stem cell?

  • Adult stem cells are ‘unspecialized or undifferentiated cells’ that have the capacity to differentiate into a limited number of related cell types. Stem cells also have the property that they can replicate themselves a large number of times. Mature cells, by contrast, are fully differentiated into a specific cell type, and represent a much larger proportion of the cells in your body. Mature cells cannot differentiate into related cell types and usually have a very limited capacity to replicate.
