Are mature cells better than stem cells for cloning?
...lls destined to become granulocytes. Early stage embryos
called blastocysts were generated from 35-39% of the mature granulocytes. However, only 4% of the immature stem cells could generate blastocysts. Two live cloned mice pups could be generated only by the differentiated granulocytes, though they died a...

to be screened for deadly genetic diseases. The technique takes a cell from a 3-day-old embryo and screens for presence of chromosomal abnormalities. The survey found that 186 out of 415 fertility clinics in the US were performing procedures to ident...

Breakthrough In The Identity Of Compounds That Encourage Stem Cell Growth
... When stem cells isolated from the brains of mouse embryos
were exposed to LTB4 they proliferated and differentiated, giving rise to additional stem cells and to differentiated neurons with limited or absent capacity to divide. When exposed to LXA4, these cells experienced decreased growth and apoptosis. "...
