How induced Pluripotent Stem Cells are created?

Pluripotent stem cells have tremendous potential in regenerative medicine. Pluripotent stem cells have the capability to develop into all the cells derived from the three germ layers. Earlier only the embryonic stem cells were known to be the pluripotent stem cells. The groundbreaking research work of Takahashi and Yamanaka published in 2006 paved the way […]
