  • Stem Cells
    • Embryonic
      • Pluripotent
        • ALMOST ANY type of cell
    • Umbilical cord
      • Adult
        • Multipotent
          • Umbilical cord
            • Adult
              • Multipotent
                • Cells of a PARTICULARTYPE
                • Unipotent
                  • ONE TYPE of cell- adult tissue
          • Cells of a PARTICULARTYPE
          • Unipotent
            • ONE TYPE of cell- adult tissue
    • Placental
    • iPS
      • Unipotent cells are turned into iPS
      • Contain characteristics of embryonic stem cells
      • Uses transcriptional factors and genes to express certain genes
      • Express some of the same genes as embryonic stem cells but not duplicates of them
      • Capable of self-renewal- potentially limitless supply
    • Totipotent
      • Early embryo
      • Differentiate into ALL cells
