"With the recent advances in cell biology and molecular genetics, scientists were able to isolate and culture tissue-specific stem cells from various sources and define their properties. The challenge has now shifted to understanding the genetic programs controlling the stem cell state, i.e., self-renewal and multipotential," scientists writing in the International Journal of Biochemistry & Cell Biology reported.
"Cracking the molecular codes that govern the stem cell state turns out to be a difficult task. This is in part because a single gene...
