pluripotent cell

[′plūr·ə‚pōt·ent ‚sel]
(embryology)
A cell capable of differentiating into most cell types found in an organism but not capable of forming a functional organism.

The data presented provided evidence that retinal tissue produced in Lineage's laboratory from pluripotent cell lines was able to engraft tumor-free in a rat model for severe retinal degeneration and showed evidence of functional improvement.
In a separate presentation, Lineage demonstrated the ability to generate high quality retinal organoid tissue with a high number of maturing rod and cone photoreceptors from our highly characterized cGMP-grade pluripotent cell lines.
Having characterized these cells, the team also observed them form at the earliest stages of pluripotent cell reprogramming from adult cells.
Juridification in Bioethics: Governance of Human Pluripotent Cell Research
A team of scientists, which includes 15 Australians as well as researchers from Canada, Netherlands and South Korea, have identified a new kid of stem cell, a type of pluripotent cell. The stem cell opens up the prospect of using the patient's cells to make organs and issues which would be used to treat medical conditions.
Although the AG (in line with the majority of Member States' legislation) did not consider that pluripotent HeS fell within this definition of an embryo (as such cells were not capable of developing into a complete human being), he did consider that their use was still excluded from patentability as "it is not possible to ignore the origin of this pluripotent cell."
In this study, we demonstrated that the antigens Tra-1-60 and Tra1-81 were expressed in porcine ES-like cells Therefore, these markers could be used as stem cell markers for porcine pluripotent cells. The expression of pluripotent cell related genes such as oct-4 (Dyce et al., 2004; Kues et al., 2005) and nanog in porcine ES-like cells was assayed by RT-PCR (Figure 3).
George's excellent nationalreview.com piece made it clear that those who refuse to sanction the killing of human embryos for their stem cells "have vigorously supported non-embryo-destructive methods of obtaining pluripotent cell." Prof.
With its cell replacement platform, the company is producing new cells and tissues with its proprietary pluripotent cell technologies to replace those that are either rendered dysfunctional or lost due to degenerative diseases or injuries.
Weissman told the conference that he and his colleagues at SyStemix Inc., a biotechnology company he founded in Palo Alto, Calif., had isolated a human pluripotent cell that can generate nearly every type of human blood cell when transplanted into the bone marrow of mice lacking an immune system.
Kaufman has identified several CAR constructs optimized for NK cell signaling, persistence and cytotoxicity, and combined his targeting content with Fate Therapeutics' induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) product platform for development of off-the-shelf CAR-targeted NK cell products using clonal engineered master pluripotent cell lines.
Since the growth factors appeared to make such a difference, the researchers tried to make a more useful human pluripotent cell using a new approach.
