Stem cell types
- Totipotent stem cell : Single cells that have the potential to form an entire organism. They have the capacity to specialize into extraembryonic membranes and tissues, the embryo, and all postembryonic tissues and organs. (Medical Subject Headings)
- Multipotent stem cell : Specialized stem cells that are committed to give rise to cells that have a particular function (Medical Subject Headings)
- Myoblast : Embryonic (precursor) cells of the myogenic lineage that develop from the mesoderm. They undergo proliferation, migrate to their various sites, and then differentiate into the appropriate form of myocytes (Medical Subject Headings)
- Hematopoietic stem cell : Progenitor cells from which all blood cells derive (Medical Subject Headings)
- Lymphoid progenitor cell : Stem cells from which B-lymphocytes; T-lymphocytes; natural killer cells and some dendritic cells derive
- Myeloid progenitor cell : Stem cells that differentiate into megakaryocytes, erythroid cells, myeloid cells and some dendritic cells
- Granulocyte-macrophage progenitor cell : The parent cells that give rise to both cells of the granulocyte lineage and cells of the monocyte and macrophage lineage.
- Megakaryocyte-erythroid progenitor cell : Differentiated stem cells that give rise to both cells of the megakaryocyte and the erythrocyte lineages, as part of the process of erythropoesis
- Pluripotent stem cell : Stem cells that can give rise to cells of the three different germ layers (Medical Subject Headings)
- Gary Bauer : American social conservative, heading the interest group, American Values; 2000 candidate for the Republican presidential nomination; board member of Foundation for Defense of Democracies; Christian Zionist on the board of Christians United For Israel
- George W. Bush : (1946–) 43rd U.S. President (Republican), elected in 2000 and re-elected in 2004.
- James Langevin : U.S. House of Representatives (D-Rhode Island); House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and Tactical and Technical Intelligence Subcommittee, House Armed Services Committee, House Committee on the Budget; Co-Founder and Co-Chairman of the bipartisan House Cybersecurity Caucus; special interest in stem cell research as only quadriplegic in Congress; 2008 100% rating from Americans for Democratic Action and 0% rating from American Conservative Union; Congressional Internet Caucus
- Barack Obama : 44th President of the United States of America (2009–2017) and a former Senator from Illinois (born 1961).
- American Values : A conservative interest group founded by Gary Bauer
- National Right to Life Committee : A U.S. group principally opposed to abortion and euthanasia, with some interest in other life issues; Affiliate, Alliance Defense Fund
- NARAL Pro-Choice America : Add brief definition or description
Auto-populated based on Special:WhatLinksHere/Stem cell. Needs checking by a human.
- Anemia : A condition characterized by insufficient circulating and effective hemoglobin in blood to support normal physiology.
- Astrocyte : A non-neural cell type in the brain and spinal cord of vertebrates.
- Cryobiology : The study of living organisms, organs, biological tissues or biological cells at low temperatures.
- Cryopreservation : A process where cells or whole tissues are preserved by cooling to low sub-zero temperatures.
- Embryology : The study of how organisms develop between the times of conception and birth.
- Erythrocyte : Blood cells that carry hemoglobin
- Genetic engineering : The process of manipulating genes, usually outside the organism's normal reproductive process.
- Leukocyte : Colourless cells of the immune system which defend the body against both infectious disease and foreign materials, and grouped into neutrophils, eosinophils, basophils, lymphocytes, and monocytes.
- Life extension : Medical and non-medical attempts to slow down or reverse the processes of aging, to extend both the maximum and average lifespan.
- Multiple sclerosis : A chronic, inflammatory, demyelinating disease that affects the central nervous system (CNS).
- Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine : Award conferred once a year by the Swedish Karolinska Institute, for physiology or medicine, since 1901.
- Obama administration : The policy making organization lead by President Barack Obama.
- Pathology : The medical specialty that is expert in the use of laboratory methods to support clinicians in diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis
- Rejuvenation (aging) : Hypothetical reversal of the aging process, aiming to repair the damage that is associated with aging or replacement of damaged tissue with new tissue.
- Targeted gene replacement : Technique in which cloned DNA is introduced into mammalian stem cell culture, via gene modification in vitro.
